As we move forward with our fundraising efforts, we want you to be able to give to the areas you care about most. We have created three different funds catered to YOU, the eclectic dance connoisseur:
Studio to Stage
Do you care about thorough dance training? Do you want to further the development of young professionals and established performing artists?
This fund will allow DNA to keep class and rental prices low, to create innovative programs, to expand opportunities for all dancers, and to initiate deeper youth and teen training to develop the next generation.
DNA provides funding to more than 10 artistic development programs, impacting thousands of artists yearly. DNA also provides 120 weekly classes at close to one third the market rate and provides competitive rental rates.

Do you value the complexities of producing live performance culminating in the DNA Presents season? Does DNA’s commitment to the spectrum of dance artistry excite you? Do you want to shore up the inner workings of a theatre?
This fund benefits the artists in our theater and the avid theater-goer. Help DNA keep our tickets prices low, provide rehearsal space to our talented artists, and support our hard-working theater apprentices and crew. In addition, this will support audience development, a ticket subscription program, and new ways to get the audience and the artist involved and engaged with each other.
DNA has presented over 380 performances since the launch of DNA PRESENTS in 2006. Known for supporting artists who explore and expound upon existing boundaries, DNA’s artist residency opportunities give the freedom and opportunity to create and refine their work at all stages.

Do you want to magnify dance’s role in the revitalization of Lower Manhattan? Do you want to grow DNA as a cultural hub within the New York and Lower Manhattan community? Do you want to get more involved with neighboring businesses and individuals?
This fund will support outreach events, community engagement and opportunities to increase exposure and visibility of DNA classes and performances, starting with local initiatives and growing to DNA’s worldwide community.
DNA relocated to Lower Manhattan to be part of the post-9/11 revitalization efforts and provide the community with a central hub for high-quality dance education and performance opportunities. At the center of DNA is a strong community that focuses on quality cultural development and cares about interacting with its local community.

“Dance New Amsterdam has been committed to informing dancers to the importance of being well-rounded in order to progress in the field. The more skills developed, the stronger the dancer. Increased skills means career longevity and options for future opportunities.” - Layla Macoran, Examiner
