Celebrating 25 remarkable years of transformative dance education in Brooklyn, Dancewave reflects on the 35,000 students, teachers, artists, parents and audience members it has touched through its affordable and high-impact programs. Dancewave reaches 6,000 students of all ages and abilities annually through dance residencies in public schools, senior centers and community events across all five boroughs.
THANK YOU DANCEWAVE FAMILY! We reached our $25K goal! You helped us restore a portion of funds lost to due the cancellation of our annual fundraiser gala.
We are committed to providing affordable access to dance for all and maintaining employment opportunities for our teaching artists, despite our own loss of income. Please celebrate with us and join us for an online class!
Dancewave was founded in 1995 by Executive & Artistic Director Diane Jacobowitz first as a singular event called the Kids Cafe Festival, with a vision to empower and inspire citywide youth through a shared experience of performing together on stage. With the opening of its brand new dance and community center in the heart of growing Gowanus in June 2019, Dancewave is poised to expand its reach and its impact more than ever before in its 25-year history.
