My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Keshet , Albuquerque, NM, USA
I don't have enough superlatives to describe this organization. In addition to their courses and basic programming, their involvement in the community is a model to be followed by others. They bring dance to a wide variety of people, providing opportunities for artistic expression and personal development and exploration to people who traditionally are denied such access due to physical, cultural, or economic circumstances. Their programs and personnel are the embodiment of how art is critical to a full life, enhances quality of life, and is critical to personal growth. While addressing programming to all sorts of purposes and audiences, professional to marginalized, they also serve as a driving force in the arts community and culture of Albuquerque with their innovation center. Keshet is a thriving and vibrant performance, development, incubator, and support center unlike anything I have witnessed in many years of being around the arts. At Keshet, everyone belongs, everyone learns and grows, and everyone has a home in a context of artistic growth and development. Phenomenal is an understatement.
