New home for "Verve"

We are Verve Dance Studio, a school dedicated to the art of Bboying and Hip Hop Culture that has been located in the heart of downtown Buffalo for the last 12 years. With a small team of dancers & teachers, we serve 500-1,000 kids and young adults in the Buffalo Niagara region a month through classes, events and other community programming.

A few months ago we learned we would need to find a new home to start our Fall session, as the owners of our building are expanding into our current space. 

Through the generous support of the community, we've been able to consider space options that weren't available to us when we first learned we needed to relocate. We're asking for your continued support to secure one of these options and continue to offer Buffalo's youth and the larger dance community opportunities to grow and a positive, safe space to express themselves.

Your contributions will provide a homebase for programs that make a difference in the lives of kids and their families. Every dollar counts, and no amount is too small.

Thank you so much for your support.

Peace & Love,
Shane & the whole Verve Family
