Performance Season Updates


For our 23rd Performance Season, we are beginning the development of a new work entitled Habit Formed which will preview in June 2023 and premiere in full in 2024. Habit Formed will explore how habits are created and broken in our lives — creating freedom and restriction. We are also in residency at Hofstra University. For our 22nd Performance Season, we premiered Threads at New York Live Arts. Threads explored what holds us together in isolation and the practice of letting go. For our 21st Performance Season, we presented a Virtual Performance and Gala and 3 Outdoor Performances in NYC, High Falls, and East Hampton. Our 20th Anniversary Performance Season was presented by the CUNY Dance Initiative at Baruch Performing Arts Center. With a focus on reflection and memory, Hindsight referenced signature structures from two decades of richly layered repertory. Our 2019 Season Crossroads premiered at New York Live Arts Inspired Magritte and Escher, Crossroads animated a surrealistic landscape that highlighted moments at crossroads, choosing one path or another, and how these moments steer the course of our lives.

Arts in Education

In the 2021-2022 school year, we experienced dramatic growth in our programming. We had 70 successful dance education programs throughout NYC in-school, after-school, an on weekends. Leading with our values of fostering inclusion, community, and expression through dance, we have strengthened and broadened our relationships with artists, partners, supporters, and friends. With funding from the NYC Department of Education’s Office of Arts and Special Projects, we also brought five unique Community Programs to our partners which included round robin multi-cultural dance workshops, an ASDT performance, inter-generational dance, and community joy. With 45 Company Teaching Artists working throughout the year, we surpassed the 100,000 students reached mark. 
"I loved the new experience. It really helped me break out of my comfort zone. The dances were fun to learn and enjoyable.
5th grader, PS 78X
"Notes in Motion has made a positive impact on the students because it gives them an outlet to express themselves in ways that they are not able to in the classroom. "

"We got the chance to learn something new, hear different music and meet members of our school community."
