Summer on the Hudson - Harlem Dances - Groove With Me


Date: August 19, 2011

Come see local dancers demonstrate their moves.

Aug 19 - Groove With Me

Groove With Me began with a vision that a dance center could become a safe space where girls would discover their potential. In June 1996 the organization’s founder Abigail Rosin launched her first class with two students at Loisaida, Inc., a community center on the Lower East Side. In that first year, Groove With Me grew to serve over 40 girls ages 7-14 with five classes per week and seven volunteer teachers. In February 2001 Groove With Me opened its own studio in Spanish Harlem. In the first half hour of registration 200 girls poured through the door. This rapid growth clearly demonstrates the need for this girl-specific activity.

In August 2002 Meredith Sherman came on staff as Program Director. Through her efforts Groove With Me, Inc. is able to maintain 275 students, 33 classes a week and 40 volunteer teachers.

Groove With Me is driven by volunteers who donate at least one hour each week, 48 weeks out of the year.
