Help support SMC dancers going to NYC

Dance NYC is a Travel Study Tour, giving our students a one-week immersion in the New York City dance scene. Students take master classes at prestigious training institutions including Gibney Dance, Alvin Ailey, and New York City Center, and visit resource centers such as the New York Public Library for the Performing Arts. Performances opportunities include visits to American Ballet Theater, the Joyce Theater, Brooklyn Academy of Music, and Broadway. Students will also have the opportunity to visit university transfer sites and meet with faculty and students from institutions including SUNY, Marymount Manhattan, Barnard, Adelphi, and Pace. Students will also connect with alumni from SMC that now reside in NYC. 

Consider donating to sponsor our students in this endeavor by December 31st! All donations go directly to the students to help cover program fees and are tax deductible.
