We are Born Dancing. The place where everybody dances.

We are a New York based nonprofit that creates one-of-a-kind dance performances featuring dancers with and without disabilities and offers dance education programs for Students with Disabilities and High-Needs Students. Our dance education programs and performances provide Students with Disabilities with real-world dance performance and production experiences, apprenticeships to learn job and social skills, and internships in performing arts production and related fields to facilitate employment of people with disabilities and dance/theater production.

Born Dancing will present four works, including two new works on January 19, 20, and 21, 2018 at The Riverside Theater


Wasted Love premiered February 17-19, 2017 at the New York Live Arts Theater. Wasted Love is a modern dance, multi-media (Not So) Fairy Tale set to music by Misty Boyce, who joined the performances. Check out some of the video from this unique one-act as well as a making-of video below.

Limits showcases the dancers performing site-specific choreography all over New York City. This video was part of Wasted Love and played during the live performances across the stage behind the dancers.

Born Dancing provides approximately 40 students at three schools the opportunity to take dance classes or dance production classes with highly experienced performing arts professionals. Student-dancers will perform on stage with the professionals while the student-apprentices assist in Stage Management, Costume Design, Lighting Design, and Videography. Our focus is on developing social and communication skills and acquiring meaningful job readiness skills in a real-world setting.
