H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory – Event Sponsor
H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory was founded by hip-hop dance luminary, educator, choreographer and philanthropist Safi A. Thomas. It is a world renowned institution for professional hip-hop dance plus academics housed in NYC.
H+ | The Hip-Hop Dance Conservatory is founded upon 6 foundational pillars: Pedagogy, Repertory, Advocacy, Medical Research, Infrastructure, and Design, signified by the acronym, PYRAMID®. These pillars are designed under the premise that every artist is a human first. This artist cannot thrive at their greatest potential if their basic human needs are not being met consistently. In turn, each pillar was carefully chosen to address the needs of our culture and community in Hip-Hop, which are in many ways reflective of the needs of the overarching arts infrastructure in the United States. Find out more about these pillars on our website.

The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries was founded in 1989 in partnership with the Harkness Foundation for Dance and the Hospital for Joint Diseases in response to the New York dance community’s critical need for specialized and affordable health care. Still today more than 50% of dancers are uninsured or underinsured and cannot afford the medical help they need. The Harkness Center for Dance Injuries and NYU Langone’s Hospital for Joint Diseases are committed to offer a full variety of affordable health care options from free preventative screenings to subsidized and sliding fee-scale injury management systems.
To celebrate Dance Week, Harkness will be hosting a workshop on Balance and the Spine taught by Marijeanne Liederbach, PhD, PT, with guest instructors from Pilobolus and Mark Morris Dance Center.

The history of the Arthur Murray Franchised Dance Studios began in 1912 with a man named Arthur Murray, an American symbol of entrepreneurial success and social dancing. Murray’s creative use of print advertising attracted national attention. In March of 1920, using students from Georgia Tech, Murray arranged to have music transmitted to a group of his dance students a few miles away. This was the world’s first radio broadcast of live dance music for dancing. In July 1950, Mr. Murray purchased five fifteen minute television spots on CBS and persuaded his wife Kathryn to do the teaching. Today, there are over 250 studios around the world. Arthur Murray dance teachers can be found not only in the studios, but on the movies sets in Hollywood, backstage on Broadway, and in partnerships with major entertainers.
