In 2005, a group of artists came together in Jersey City to create innovative dance that impacts the community. Rehearsing in a space at Grace Church Van Vorst, Nimbus Dance was formed, bringing the arts to a city with little arts support. Seven years later, the School of Nimbus opened with eighteen students.

Everyday, young students developed perseverance, grit, confidence, self-expression, and creativity. They found friends among each other. They received outstanding dance training in ballet, modern, and performance. And in the local Jersey City school district, Nimbus Dance began delivering dance education during the school day. Students were given the unusual opportunity to stand up from their desks, discover new ways of moving, flex their creative-thinking brains, develop problem-solving skills, and find new relationships with their classmates.

Today, the number of youth impacted through Nimbus Dance has reached 4000. $40,000 in scholarships are distributed per year to students so that they can study dance with Nimbus Dance. The number of performances per year has blossomed to fifty in New Jersey, New York, and around the country. Generous supporters have recognized Nimbus’ work with the community and aided in the growth of the organization. But questions kept arising:

In what space can Nimbus Dance best serve the community?
In what space can Nimbus Dance continue to change the lives of the young and old through the arts?

In winter 2020, that space will open: The Nimbus Arts Center at the Lively. A state-of-the-art facility in Jersey City’s Powerhouse Arts District, the 15,500 sq. ft. center will feature a black box theater, dance studios, administrative offices, and art gallery space. However, we need your help.

To help make this a reality, and to help change the arts landscape of Hudson County, please donate to our Capital Campaign.

Thank you!
