Dance for World Community (DWC) is a partnership-based initiative that amplifies the connective power of dance to unify and strengthen our local communities.
Created by José Mateo Ballet Theatre in 2008, Dance for World Community recognizes dance as a vastly underutilized medium not only for personal development but also for creating stronger community cohesion and raising awareness about social issues that matter to all communities around the world. JMBT created DWC in order to:
- Provide new structures for programs to engage and serve local communities through dance in more inclusive ways, and
- Raise awareness on a more global level about the medium’s powerful, yet untapped, potential to address social issues that concern us all, in ways that simultaneously build strong community cohesion.
