What is Dancing Dreams?

Dancing Dreams is a 501(c)3 nonprofit with a three fold mission:

to provide dance classes and performance opportunities for children ages 3-21 with medical or physical challenges
to enhance leadership skills and self esteem of teens ages 13-18
to provide community outreach and education in the area of disability awareness and tolerance
Classes are held weekly in our three locations in Bayside (Queens), Upper East Side (Manhattan), and Plainview (Long Island). They are designed to allow our dancers to experience the joy of dance regardless of their physical ability. The year ends with an Annual Performance, an onstage celebration of the achievements of our students.

Why they are Awesome

  • Dancing Dreams has grown from five girls to current 130 girls and boys. Classes are adapted so each child can participate to the best of his or her own unique ability.

  • There is a voluntary contribution for classes to help cover the cost of the program. However, no child is ever turned away for an inability to pay. There is never a charge to join us at our annual performance.
