Support Piel Canela Dance School

Joe Burgo's Piel Canela Dance School is where many of our dance dreams and careers began. It's how we forged a vast array of networks, discovered dance partners, friends for life, or even found love.

It offers a buffet line of different dances: Latin, African, Ballroom, etc. Furthermore, Joe Burgo's vision to impart this gift has enabled this art to become more accessible to everyone. Thanks to Piel Canela, the once seemingly esoteric science of dance transcended beyond the borders of color, age, ability, and socioeconomic impact and disparity. As a result, our diverse NYC community was further unified and empowered.

Because of our appreciation for Piel Canela—we the students—were inspired to start this fundraiser on their behalf to show more support. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 shutdown has claimed numerous small business casualties—many of which like Piel Canela did not qualify for any loans or financial aid. Thus, it is time for our dance community to support our Piel Canela instructors and staff during this crisis so that they can continue their mission: to contribute to the art and future of dance that which we may all share in.
