For Dance not-for-profit established in New York City in 2003. For Dance Inc. is dedicated to the creation, promotion, preservation, and presentation of original theatrical (dance) works by ground-floor , emerging and established dance artists encompassing all disciplines of dance.
For Dance, Inc. further strives to build cultural exchanges and partnerships between New York City based dance artists and dance companies and national and international dance artists, dance companies, and dance festivals.
These activities further our exempt charitable purpose by promoting and presenting original artistic experiences to the public. Performances are presented for a wide variety and diversity of audiences in diverse venues. These performances expose audiences to new dance forms and new dance artists from a broad spectrum of dance arts from different ethnic groups and geographic locations. Through For Dance, Inc.’s reduced price and free tickets program, performances introduce underserved and disadvantaged populations to the art of dance and encourage public participation in the arts.
A concerted effort is made to identify dance artists and dance companies who have established themselves in depressed areas of the community and who might otherwise not be able to perform in more established dance venues. These performances also serve to stimulate local culture and interest in the arts by providing a platform for the development of local dance artists and dance companies. These performances also serve to increase tourism by presenting not only local artists, but national and international artists as well. While our main focus is on the emerging dance artist, performances may also include work of mid-career and established dance artists. We also work to create new and interesting ways to present dance performances in non-traditional settings.
