From Thanksgiving to New Year’s, we are highlighting each of the organizations featured in the Jersey Give-Back Guide, an online giving gadget that takes the guesswork out of year-end giving.
Nimbus Dance Works
What they do:
Nimbus Dance Works focuses its work on the intersection between high-level dance and innovative ways of involving communities and audiences.Nimbus presents performances and programs to diverse audiences locally and on tour: serving present audiences and building future ones. Performers with Nimbus Dance Works are top-tier dance artists drawn from widely recognized companies including Ballet Hispanico, Ailey II, and the Martha Graham Dance Company.
Through critically acclaimed performances throughout New Jersey and the Northeast, programs for Jersey City youth and seniors, partnerships with institutions such as the Jersey City Board of Education, Rutgers University, New Jersey City University, Drew University and the Newark Museum, and collaborations with notable composers and visual artists, Nimbus weaves together artistic excellence and community impact.
Nimbus Dance Works uses dance to bring the community together. They teach and perform dance because they believe there’s no better way to embody emotional expression and camaraderie. Their approach centers not only on excellence but how to connect with the Jersey City community, youth, and the larger dance community, collaborating with artists around the world.
Their school serves 100 young dancers, they work with about a dozen New Jersey schools and colleges, and their dancers — who hail from around the world — perform concerts throughout the Northeast.
Their largest, most successful performance is Jersey City Nutcracker, which puts a local, urban spin on the holiday story. How cool.
