Dance Rising: A Hyper-Local Dance Out taking place on October 1 and October 3rd from 5:00 - 5:30pm EST. NYC dance professionals are invited to take to the windows, rooftops, stoops, or wherever and DANCE!
WHY? Because our life's work and economic livelihood has been deeply impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We are rising up to be more visible in our communities, connect with our neighbors, and begin important conversations about how dance and dancers will survive in a post-pandemic reality.
WHAT DOES THIS MEAN? It means that we are making dance visible in a reopening landscape and showing that there is dance in every home, heart and borough of the City. We are an integral part of the culture and economy of the city and we want to be SEEN and HEARD.

5. On OCT 1 and/or OCT 3 between 5:00-5:30pm, grab a friend to film you and dance indoors or outdoors.
