On October 12 at 6:30 p.m., Gibney Dance Community Action will share its social action model with the public through a free event at the Hub at 280 Broadway, Gibney’s physical space dedicated to the arts and social action. Led by Gibney Dance Company, the event will give participants a chance to experience the movement workshops the Company regularly conducts in domestic violence shelters. A brief discussion about the program will also be included. No dance experience necessary.
Initiated in partnership with Sanctuary for Families in 2000, Gibney Dance Community Action is the first program to unite dancers with intimate partner violence survivors. It has since expanded to include Safe Horizon and many other New York City organizations, offering over 500 free workshops annually to individuals and families who are on journeys to healthier futures.
