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

Rating: 5 stars  

I have served on the board of Dancewave as board secretary since October 2007. I also chair the facilities committee. I was excited to join the board of this organization because I see its value in bringing modern dance into schools as well as the community. Furthermore, I value Dancewave's commitment to a preprofessional training program for teens (who often age out of dance programs and stop dancing as a result), complete with scholarships so that deserving students can attend. I am impressed with how well Dancewave has handled it's rapid growth in the scope of its classes and programs. It is clear that Dancewave serves as an important training ground and launching pad for talented modern dancers, and I am proud to be a part of it!

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

the Kids Cafe Festival and Gala Spring performances by Dancewave Companies I & II.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

How creative the staff is at finding new directions to take dance. This is not your ordinary neighborhood dance studio. DW already features some of the best high-school age dancers around, but it's going even further.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Very dedicated. They love dance and they love what they do.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Create an amazing facility complete with rehearsal studios and dressing areas, so we could run all our classes in the same place. Also, the studios would be available to the community for other types of meetings and classes.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
