Gibney Dance Center, one of New York City’s thriving dance hubs, has announced plans to expand its home at 280 Broadway. With eight studios already, the $2.5 million capital campaign running through 2016 will fund the building of seven new studios.
Gibney Dance Company was founded by choreographer and dance activist Gina Gibney in 1991. In 2014, she acquired the studio and performance space at 280 Broadway, formerly the home of Dance New Amsterdam. At both 280 Broadway and Gibney’s other location at 890 Broadway, students can take classes, rent studio space and participate in Gibney Dance’s frequent workshop offerings.
