Review for Dancewave, Inc., Brooklyn, NY, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been involved with Dancewave for over 6 years as a parent of a dancer and student who is a member of the Dancewave Company. The founder, Diane Jacobowitz is inspiring and committed to exposing members of the company to an amazing variety of modern dance styles. One of the more unique things Dancewave does is to have members of the company whose works they perform come to teach the kids. This exposes these young dancers to professional level experience and knowledge, which will well serve them as they pursue their dance careers. I have been involved as a volunteer, a fundraiser and supporter of Dancewave, and have found this to be a fulfilling experience. Of course as a parent, I've been able to see performances at Jacob's Pillow, the Tribeca Performing Arts Center, The Joyce Theater SoHo, PS 122 and many other important venues.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Watching a performance in a New York City Public park, and seeing the reaction of the audience members who were clearly impressed with this group of high school kids who performed complicated modern dance works with skill, professionalism and enthusiasm.
