Become a Capital Campaign Supporter
After nearly 40 years as an itinerant organization, Movement Research will move into its first long-term home at 122 Community Center (122CC) in the East Village.
The 122CC facilities, a gorgeous suite of two dance studios and an on-site office, will offer Movement Research the stability to build on its history as an incubator for revolutionary dance. As we look towards our new home’s potential, we are developing strategies to sharpen our structures for support and responsiveness—and to better meet the overwhelming demand for our programs. Your support will ensure that Movement Research’s vital work will flourish in our new home. Read the press release here.
See below to donate online by credit card. Checks can be made out to Movement Research and mailed to: Movement Research, 140 Second Avenue, New York, NY 10003
Thank you for being part of our Movement Research family. We look forward to welcoming you home soon!
