Dance Project of Washington Heights (DPWH) is home to an ever-growing community of young dance students, adult professional dancers, and various other artists passionate about dance, dance-making, and arts education. DPWH currently serves over 300 students of different ages, backgrounds, cultures, and socio-economic status. In addition, we make our space available to other dancers, choreographers and arts groups - furthering our reach beyond our direct student base.
The mission of Dance Project of Washington Heights is to remove barriers to dance education and to build community through dance. We believe the art of dance is transformative for individuals and communities. There should be no barriers to everyone experiencing the magic that dance holds, so we work to remove the barriers that do exist. In our efforts to remove such barriers, all of our kids' classes are Pay-What-You-Can.
