Give a gift to New Dance Alliance this season

View from NDA’s loft studio

As you embark on your end-of-year giving, please consider supporting New Dance Alliance

The world continues to be a tumultuous place. In a small loft in Tribeca, we look back on the year, again considering why we do what we do and why it matters:

  1. All voices need to be heard—the alternative and the new, those pushing boundaries and defining fresh genres and those who have made a difference historically.
  2. Art allows us to see things in new contexts.
  3. Experimentation and collaboration support greater understanding.
  4. A single voice can provide inspiration for others.

About LiftOff Workshops:

Fall/Winter and Winter/Spring workshops strive to create a safe and intimate space to receive feedback that supports the aesthetics of seasoned artists and explore resources to enable development. The group meets weekly for a three-hour session for 10 weeks with feedback facilitated by NDA director Karen Bernard and Jil Guyon.

During the workshop three guests from the industry are invited to be part of the feedback process. LiftOff takes place at NDA’s studio, 182 Duane Street in the heart of Tribeca. Space for LiftOff is limited.
