Gibney Dance is a groundbreaking organization whose mission is to bring the possibility of movement where it would otherwise not exist.
Its vision is to tap into the vast potential of movement, creativity, and performance to effect social change and personal transformation through three interrelated fields of action: Center, Company, and Community Action.
Offering affordable space and innovative programming,
the Center boasts two quintessentially New York spaces at 280 and 890 Broadway, each with high ceilings and streams of natural light. With the dramatic loss of rehearsal facilities over the past decade, we are committed to serving the nonprofit dance field into the future.
Driven by powerful performance,
Gibney Dance Company is dedicated to exploring the potential of human communication through movement. Our passion is to create and perform engaging work in a cooperative community.
The first program to unite dancers with survivors of domestic violence,
Community Action was founded in 2000 to bring the possibility of self-expression where it would otherwise not exist. We offer residents of NYC domestic violence shelters 500 free movement workshops each year.
