With a firm commitment to community engagement, ALMA NYC has partnered with many local and international organizations throughout the years. Our partners have included: Movement For Hope, Awareness Through Dance, ASTEP (Artists Striving to end Poverty), Sing For Hope, WIN (Women In Need), The Abraham House, CHOICES, Giving Africa, The Children's Incarnation Center, The Actors Home, The Harlem Community Center, and more.
In addition to these partnerships, for the past 7 years, ALMA NYC has run a program named GIFT, which provided scholarships for women in Burkina Faso to receive an education, healthcare, school materials, and a meal a day.
The power of movement does not start and end on the stage. By partnering with organizations, dance has allowed us to connect with at risk youth in alternative to detention programs, individuals with neurological conditions, those with cognitive or developmental disabilities, in addition to individuals who simply didn't believe engaging with the arts was a possibility for them.
As an organization, we believe that the responsibility to offer what we can to our community ranks above all else.
