Keeping Dance Visible in NYC

In March 2020, the NYC dance world came to a halt.


Theaters shut down, and an entire industry that depends on proximity -- rehearsing and teaching in studios, performing on stages and film sets -- found itself isolated and out of work.

In Fall 2020, we invited dance artists to step into public spaces to remind themselves and New Yorkers: Dance is a creative force in our city. 

In March 2021, we premiered these videos throughout New York City as a tribute to a year of dancing through quarantine.


  • Multi-screen Projections (March 13-21 at 21 Astor Pl.)

45-minute loop starting at sunset on March 13th.

  • LINKNYC video kiosks (March 8-26): 15 second video clips and still images running in rotation on kiosks

  • JCD Newstands & Bustops throughout Times Square Corridor (March 13-21) multiple 10 second video clips in rotation (often!)

  • Partner Organizations (March 13-21): 20+ NYC cultural venues show videos online and via street-level monitors

  • Watch the full series here, on our website
