Gibney Dance, founded in 1991, is a trailblazing organization whose mission is to bring the possibility of movement where it otherwise would not exist. Through three interrelated fields of action—Center, Company, and Community Action—Gibney Dance is “Making Space for Dance” in studios, on stages, and in underserved shelters and schools.
Gibney Dance Center is a powerhouse of cultural support for the performing arts community and the City itself. Its two remarkable spaces—Gibney Dance Choreographic Center at 890 Broadway and Gibney Dance: Agnes Varis Performing Arts Center at 280 Broadway—provide a roster of events supporting the creative process, encouraging dialogue, and providing professional development opportunities.
Gibney Dance Company is the Centers’ acclaimed resident dance ensemble, led by choreographer Gina Gibney. Following 25 years of achievement, Gibney Dance re-envisioned its Company, empowering its dancers as both artists and activists. Known as Artistic Associates, these dedicated partners advance the quality of the organization’s artistry through performance, and deepen its community engagement through administrative fellowships and serving as advocates for pressing issues in the dance field.
Gibney Dance Community Action is on the leading edge of mobilizing the arts to address social justice issues. This highly respected program uses dance to empower survivors of interpersonal violence through multiple platforms, including Movement Workshops for domestic violence survivors; Global Community Action Residencies that share our model and practices internationally; the Community Action Hub and its resources for social change-minded artists; and Advocacy Initiatives that spread awareness and mobilize artists to respond to social issues.
