A boutique company that continually takes BIG risks... 
Take a gamble on us...

Through Kickstarter we raised $10,000 in the 2012 fiscal year. Help us do it again and perhaps surpass our goal!

SBDNY is a boutique nonprofit dance company based in NYC. We have just completed a banner year of educational programming and performances in Germany, Miami, Brazil, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Vancouver, Denmark, Istanbul, and Atlanta. We need you now more than ever to produce our 2013 home season from May 23-June 2 at Baruch Performing Arts Center which will feature the return of audience favorites and new works over the course of two weeks. Our KICKSTARTER campaign will help to cover the cost of the artistic and technical personnel needed to produce a successful season. Join us on this incredible journey!

In 2012 The Dance Enthusiast wrote: "Sidra Bell Dance New York , a "boutique company"(their clever description), has already pulled off what most small, independent dance companies in this city dream about - a full two-week season in one theater. Hallelujah and hats off to Bell and to the Baruch Performing Arts Center who will be housing her." We aim to push the envelope again with a program that reflects our vision of presenting progressive and high scale theater to audiences from all walks of life.
