ETDOutreach : Help Us Keep Dance Alive!

At the very core of our values as a company, ETD Outreach has always been about giving back. ETDO serves the most vulnerable communities in NYC, hosting various dance, wellness, and movement workshops in supportive housing sites around the five boroughs. ETDO’s mission is to help others find their fire and spark a light in the darkness. Now, during this global crisis, we kindly ask for your assistance and generosity to ensure that we can continue the collaborative and meaningful workshops that we’ve spent years hosting. If you can't give at this time we kindly ask that you share our GoFundMe page with your network to help spread the word! 

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused all ETD Outreach in-person workshops to a screeching halt. In this incredibly isolating time, it is so easy to feel hopeless. It is crucial to continue our work with the vulnerable communities and individuals in NYC who need it most and to support our team of independent contractors who act as instructors for ETDO, many of whom abruptly have no source of income. 

Your generosity will uplift and sponsor 15 weeks of outreach programming!

The Small Business Relief Initiative, made possible by GoFundMe, Intuit QuickBooks, Yelp, GoDaddy, and, will give $500 match grants to businesses that raise at least $500 on GoFundMe. By donating today, you're helping us reach our goal AND making your money go farther. #smallbusinessrelief 

In these times of uncertainty, no one can say what the future holds or when life will return to normalcy. However,  ETD Outreach remains committed to lighting a spark in the darkness, sharing the power of movement, and offering inspiration and motivation to groups and individuals. With your support, we can do this in this present moment, and look forward to continuing our mission in a brighter future. With your donation to ETDO, you will be doing just that by creating a domino effect of sharing, supporting, and connecting to people in communities across NYC and beyond. If you can't give at this time, please share our GoFundMe page with your network to help spread the word!
