Making space for

As our City grapples with a profoundly ‘new abnormal,’ picture a world where dance artists rise up as a force for positive change and a path forward for the reclamation of culture.

Artists are here to challenge, add meaning, and transform. Artists are here to constantly reimagine our world and show us what could be. Artists are here to bring people together and build communities. Artists have been here for New York City time and time again.

The potential of artists to play a uniquely valuable role in rebuilding a vibrant, thriving New York City deserves attention.  This is why Gibney has launched the #HereForArtists campaign. Will you join us?

  • $500,000 to an over $7 million operating budget
  • 2 full-time staff to 29 full-time staff, 37 part-time staff, and 10 interns at any given time

  • Steward 23 studios and 5 performance spaces
  • Provide 100+ weekly classes
  • Commission 30+ new performance works
  • Present 180+ performances
  • Attract 9.500+ audience members

You make this possible.

Gina Gibney
