It was in 2015 that we opened our first full-time studio, offering six days of urban dance and cultural education every week to youth and adults.  We hosted over 30 community events, including performances, panels discussions, competitions, jams, and open sessions.  The studio has become a home for many in the urban dance community, as seen above at the Juneteenth celebration during our International Soul Society Festival.

In 2016, we remain committed to increasing our studio and organizational resources, expanding our educational reach to communities with little access to the arts, and further developing The Preservatory Project, an archive of the many voices of the urban dance community in the DC area and beyond. We look forward to serving this community together with your continued support.  If you would like to make a tax refundable donation, please click here.

Here are a couple of our favorite memories from 2015!
