Dance Magazine's 2024

"25 To Watch"

We are so proud of Artistic Director Sydnie Mosley who was named in January 2024 as one of Dance Magazine's "25 To Watch"


"Electric performances, thought-provoking choreography, buzzy bodies of work—the artists... poised for a breakout share an uncanny knack for arresting attention. They’ve been turning heads while turning what’s expected—in a performance, from a career trajectory—on its head. We’re betting we’ll be seeing a lot more of them this year, and for many years to come."


Breathe + Groove

A Series of Movement, Meditation,

and Yoga Videos

This series of videos was created to share with elders who we've collaborated with at Lincoln Square Neighborhood Center as a way to stay connected in the pandemic. This series of short 10 minute media features yoga, meditation and line dancing.

Thanks to our partners at Lincoln Center Education for their support with closed captioning and editing for the Breathe and Groove series. Content available in English and Spanish. We invite you to Breathe and Groove with us.
