Global Water Dances announced yesterday that it has merged with LIMS

New York, NY. – January 17, 2017 – In a bold move to increase local and global environmental awareness through the art of dance, particularly a world invested in clean and safe water for all, Global Water Dances (GWD) announced today that it merged with the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, LIMS

GWD at LIMS brings together the Institute's recognized 39 years of non-profit History, its consistency in producing dance events (MOSAIC, for example, is in its 14th year) and other cultural programs, and the strength of its international network of CMAs and esteemed professionals in the Movement Studies field, with GWD’s amazing skills in awareness raising, online advocacy, and socially engaged dance work.

I am thrilled by the potential impact that this merging will create,” said Regina Miranda, CEO and Director of Arts & Culture of the Laban/Bartenieff Institute of Movement Studies, LIMS. GWD’s fusion of dance, culture, media, and online advocacy complements LIMS’ history, adding to the organization’s Arts & Culture programming the aspect of communities’ engagement through the arts. We believe that together we will reach new audiences, have greater ability to poetically illuminate the crucial issue of safe water for all.”

We want to THANK YOU and wish you a Wonderful Holiday Season!

At LIMS, we know how blessed  we are by a wonderful group pf students and alumni, a great staff, a committed Board of Directors, an enthusiastic Management Committee, and a supportive Laban community.
