WHO WE ARE
The Dance Institute of Washington is a dance education institution committed to providing youth the opportunity to develop artistically, socially, emotionally and intellectually through dance. DIW operates a studio school, outreach, and youth ensemble granting youth from diverse backgrounds the chance to experience the performing arts and develop important skills.
WHAT WE DO
DIW has the draw--our historic ties to the pioneers of Black Concert Dance such as Dance Theatre of Harlem; our passionate, culturally-competent, and renowned teaching artists; our state-of-the-art studio space; and our holistic training programs--to attract, retain, and advance underrepresented communities who otherwise might not ever experience quality dance training or view it as a viable option for future success.
Dance Institute of Washington increases the inclusive and diverse representation at every level of the professional ballet and dance industries locally in DC, and through that exemplary effort, impacts racial and economic equity in dance nationally and globally.
