Who We Serve
ETD Outreach works with youth programs, supportive housing sites, and senior centers across all five boroughs of New York City and beyond. Our Outreach dance workshops are uniquely customized for all levels and abilities to bring the joy and freedom of movement to everyone through equal access and customization. Movement helps reduce stress, anxiety, and depression and serves as a conduit for connection to oneself and the community.
Our core value is to ensure all workshops and events are accessible, providing equal access and opportunity to people with diverse abilities. We are continually seeking new ways to increase accessibility to the communities we currently serve and look into new ways to broaden our outreach.
As the Founder & Director of ETD Outreach, Taylor oversees a curated community outreach program that works to better society through the healing powers of dance. In 2019 his outreach team of instructors taught over 918 workshops at fifteen locations in the New York area, including Hour Children, The Acacia Network, Felix Organization, PCMH, Lantern & NYU Langone.
What People Are Saying
“Johari’s class was wonderful! It was a great workout, fun, high energy but not too demanding as far as ability as a dancer and it was a perfect time.”
ETD Outreach is a branch of Eryc Taylor Dance, a New York-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit arts organization. Individual and corporate contributions allow ETD and ETD Outreach to pay artists, and instructors, conduct master classes, support new choreographers through our grant program, curate movement-based community workshops throughout NYC, and more.
