October is Domestic Violence Awareness Month, an internationally recognized time to spread knowledge about the issue of domestic violence and support survivors. With lead sponsor New York Health & Racquet Club, Gibney is offering an extensive roster of events this month, including an Arts & Social Justice Breakfast, a day of fitness classes to benefit Gibney Dance Community Action, and Cracks of Light, a series of performance works created during the journey from struggle to survival.
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.
