Since 1935, 92Y’s Harkness Dance Center has been a historic home of modern dance, nurturing the talents of such pioneers as Martha Graham, Alvin Ailey and Merce Cunningham. In the tradition of these trailblazers, we pride ourselves on carrying forward the art of dance instruction as envisioned 20 years ago by innovative educator Jody Arnhold’s Dance Education Laboratory (DEL). As the founding home of DEL, we are eager and delighted to help each and every student discover their inner dance artist, regardless of age, level or genre.



PS Dance! is a powerful documentary from DEL founder, Jody Gottfried Arnhold. Discover the life-changing impact of dance on public school students.
