Mission Statement

Cora Dance brings the work of choreographer and arts educator Shannon Hummel to the widest possible audience with particular focus on communities that lack performing arts experiences due to limited financial resources or other isolating factors. Cora believes that establishing trust and common ground between diverse people allows all those involved in a creative endeavor - artists, students, audiences and community members - to learn from one another openly and connect more deeply.

Description

Cora Dance provides arts programs to Red Hook and the surrounding neighborhoods of Brooklyn. Cora’s programming consists of three interrelated parts: the Professional Company, the Cora School for Dance, and the Cora Studio. Cora makes each of these resources - all programs, performances, events, and studio rentals - available to everyone regardless of their ability to pay.

The Company
The professional company of Cora Dance seeks to reach the widest possible audience, with particular focus on communities that lack performing arts experiences due to limited financial resources or other isolating factors.

Cora School for Dance
By offering high-quality dance classes taught by outstanding professionals at "pay what you can" rates, Cora not only connects otherwise separate segments of the community in a meaningful way but also provides stimulating, creative opportunities for low-income, at-risk youth who might normally be excluded from a professional dance training program because of cost.

The Cora Studio
The Cora Studio is a 750-square-foot studio theater that offers rehearsal space to theNew York Citydance community, as well as residency and mentorship opportunities to under-supported populations such as artist-mothers and young choreographers. Rental fees are charged on a sliding scale. The Cora Studio serves as an affordable gathering space that gives Red Hook civic groups, non-profit organizations and small businesses a welcoming place to intersect, commune and improve the community.
