Become a Capital Campaign Supporter

In 2018, after nearly 40 years as an itinerant organization, Movement Research moved into its first long-term home at 122 Community Center (122CC) in New York City's East Village.

The 122CC facilities include two dance studios and an on-site office, which offer Movement Research the stability to build on its history as an incubator for revolutionary dance. As we embrace 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 ensures that Movement Research’s vital work will flourish in our new home.
