Opening of Gibney Dance Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center

Founded in 1991 as a performing and social action dance company, Gibney Dance made Studio 5-2 at 890 Broadway the Company’s artistic home.

Gibney Dance has and continues to do amazing work within the dance and local community. They provide more space for dance, support for the development of emerging choreographers, opportunity for artist feedback sessions, studio rentals, affordable dance classes and work with domestic violence survivors. Their community action division was founded in 2000 and provides workshops, programs, training and residencies in relation to working with domestic violence survivors. In fact, Gibney Dance was the first program to unite dancers with survivors with domestic violence.

On Thursday October 30th I attended the opening of Gibney Dance’s Lower Manhattan location near City Hall named the “Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center”.  It was such an exciting and inspiring event as I viewed the new facility!
