Dance Studio Alliance, an unprecedented collective of diverse dance organizations reimagining the tapestry of the NYC dance community, will present Moving Forward Together, an evening of performances from seven studios represented in the alliance. The showcase will spotlight the initiation of DSA’s mission to transform NYC’s dance culture and community through accessibility, diversity, and inclusion.

In this production, we will be performing two pieces.
Pearl is a deep underwater piece influenced by the gravitational pull of the moon. Performed by Katherine Moncebaiz and Rebecca Light.
Evening Samba, performed by Katherine Moncebaiz. A balmy tropical night as the sun sets, a dancer gently sambas with her shadow. (Formerly known as Elizabeth’s Solo)

ABOUT DANCE STUDIO ALLIANCE
Dance Studio Alliance NYC (DSA) was initiated in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting closures of dance studios across the city. DSA is a coalition of dance leaders who work to inform, lobby, unite, and empower the community and dance leaders to better the dance community. Through their collaboration, DSA created a comprehensive health guidance handbook for industry professionals to utilize to limit the spread of COVID-19 in reopening, which has been used as a model nationally. With participating members from 16 influential dance organizations, DSA inspires the dance sector to reimagine the impact of dance studios in their communities and create a tapestry of dance culture in New York City.
