Signature Bailando Por Una Causa Dance Showcases

Now in it’s 5th year, BAILANDO POR UNA CAUSA Signature dance showcases have become one of New York’s pre-eminent celebrations of love, life and dance. Each year we feature a diverse mix of New York’s most esteemed dance companies for a night of breathtaking performances at El Museo del Barrio to benefit the Latino Commission on AIDS, a non-profit organization dedicated to fighting the spread of HIV/AIDS. 100% of all proceeds from the event will benefit the Latino Commission on AIDS.

These showcases have proven to effectively raise money and awareness for headline organizations like the Latino Commission on AIDS while also supporting the emerging dance companies that dance beside on their behalf.

Youth Dance Programs

Childhood obesity rates are at an all-time high: today, nearly one in three kids and teens in the United States are obese or overweight. We know that physical activity produces overall physical, psychological and social benefits, and that inactive children are likely to become inactive adults.

Dance provides extra benefits to students’ health and well-being beyond activities found in a regular gym class. In addition to getting kids’ hearts racing, it increases flexibility, agility, coordination, and spatial awareness. At the same time, it develops children’s expressive, musical, motor, and auditory skills. And dance offers a noncompetitive alternative to sports—one in which visually, mentally, and physically disabled children can easily engage.

Philanthropic Leadership

Through the formation of our Global Ambassador program, we will continue to encourage and support philanthropic leadership.
