Pizarts has been providing international opportunities for emerging & established dancers, choreographers, educators, and studios to explore the world through movement since 2014. To this day, we have directed, produced, and developed dance programs in Argentina, Costa Rica, Tokyo, Jamaica,
and the United States.
Our MISSION is to support the dance community through CULTURAL EXCHANGE and PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT initiatives that encourage INTERDISCIPLINARY ART making, and PUBLIC PERFORMANCE.
Our VISION is to develop programming for our constituents in which exploring one's CREATIVE ARTISTRY, diversifying one's TRAINING, enhancing one's PERFORMANCE SKILLS, through TRAVEL and EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING is embodied and expressed communally.
Pizarts provides the dance community with performance & choreographic opportunities, individualized dance training,1-1 mentorship, cross-cultural exchange trips abroad, and professional development workshops to support career longevity & sustainability. In 2021, Pizarts launched the Bronx Artist Residency live-in/create-in space located in Soundview Bronx for dancers, musicians, and visual artists looking to showcase their work, host an event, or residency.
Today's dancers are more diverse than ever before.
There is no one program that fits all.
Our programs are tailor-made and individually crafted to meet each dancer's needs.
