This week, September 9-15, 2018, is a time to show extra support for dance education.
National Arts in Education week, designated by Congress in 2010, was created to "celebrate and recognize the power of arts education and call for equitable access to the arts for all students."
Dance/NYC is supporting by sharing videos from New York's dance community about the importance of a dance education. See below a few of the videos from the over 100 New Yorkers showing their support for dance.
