From live productions to weekly classes, THE POINT strives to create exposure and access to dance in Hunts Point.
I. Live Performance
THE POINT’s Live From The Edge Theater has hosted Bessie Award winner Arthur Aviles, Pangea World Theater, Opus Dance Theater, Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and dancers from Dance Theatre of Harlem and Alvin Ailey. Among the organization’s most significant artistic achievements is the wealth of talent that has emerged from THE POINT in recent years, which includes: Arthur Aviles Typical Theater, Full Circle Dance Company, and Contemporary Ballet Theater. The agency also helped incubate the neighboring Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance (BAAD!).
II. Resident Dance Companies
THE POINT collaborates with resident artists to enhance the Youth Development Program’s arts curricula and connect professional artists with the Hunts Point community. Resident dance companies have included Flamenco Vivo Carlota Santana and Amalgamate Dance.
III. Dance Education
THE POINT offers dance classes with resident dance companies and instructors to young people in its After School and Summer Youth Programs.
