The Dance Enthusiast Celebrates Dance & Fashion on November 12, 2014 with Spectacular Guests

This Dancing Season of 2014-15, The Dance Enthusiast ( in the spirit of leading an exuberant revolution in dance communication) is making a new move and taking our work offline.

We have been fortunate enough to receive a grant from the Mertz Gilmore Foundation to create a series of Enthusiastic Events!

AND, as you might imagine, we are enthused.

We want you to be in the audience for Our INAUGURAL DANCE ENTHUSIAST EVENT! on Wednesday November 12, 2014. The theme is Fashion & Dance and it is going to be spectacular.

Tickets are only $30.00.

What is an Enthusiastic Event!?

A cross between a salon performance and a gathering at your best friend's home, during an Enthusiastic Event!, The Dance Enthusiast brings renowned dance artists and prime movers from diverse fields together to meet our audience in an intimate setting. The masters share their creations, ideas, and methods, and we all are welcomed to discover and converse while mingling over delicious bites prepared by some of New York City's finest chefs. Our Enthusiastic Event! Series offers audiences an extraordinary entree to dance, creation, passion, and connection.


Why Enthusiastic Events?

   “I’ve always believed there is a dance enthusiast in many of us, just waiting to come out. One of the most important ways to reawaken that inner dance enthusiast is to get people talking to the artists --not in a huge, formal proscenium theater-- but in a small setting, like a home. I want to bring people home to dance and its tremendous value to our culture.”
