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

Rating: 5 stars  

Dancewave is a phenomenal organization that exposes thousands of young people per year to the creative process and a wide range of dance forms, while instilling in them self-discipline and teamwork. The staff and teaching faculty are passionate about providing opportunities for ALL children and teens to learn and express themselves through dance at the highest level.

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

watching its dancers perform technically and emotionally challenging choreography.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

find a way to increase its capacity to serve more kids and work with many more renowned American choreographers.

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

how the staff eat, sleep, and breathe their goal of helping young people be their best selves through dance.

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

professional and committed to Dancewave's community of children and families.

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

perform for and with young people all over the world! It could also give thousands of more children the opportunity to create and perform modern dance.

Ways to make it better...

there were more resources to devote to programs and operations, and if it had its own dedicated rehearsal and performance space.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

finding school and community groups who would like to partner in providing wonderful dance programming for young people.
