On the eve of January 23, 2020 a 5-alarm fire tore through 70 Mulberry Street, home to Chen Dance Center. The top half of the building collapsed and the remainder is water and smoke damaged. Thankfully none of our staff were onsite during the fire.
The historic building, formerly PS 23, is home to numerous cultural and social service organizations including ours, Chen Dance Center. For over 40 years, Chen Dance Center has been dedicated to serving the Asian-American community and the New York City dance community.
All of our programs have been put on hold until we are able to build next steps. Our mission is dedicated to serving the Asian-American and dance communities through arts education.
At a time like this, we ask for your assistance to help Chen Dance Center get back on its feet. Please help us spread the word by sharing this with your community.
