About Keshet 

Mission

Rooted in dance, mentorship, and a welcoming space for the arts, Keshet activates community and fosters unlimited possibilities through education, engagement, innovation, and the pursuit of justice.

Vision

To celebrate the art of dance and be a welcoming home for the intersection of the arts, artists, and audience; actuating a flourishing environment for empowered individuals, nurtured communities, and sustained equity.

 

Housed at the Keshet Center for the Arts in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and founded in 1996, the heart of our organization is Keshet Dance Company, a core group of professional dance artists, who creatively feed and are fed by four intersecting areas of community impact: Social Justice through Dance, the Business of Art, Community Dance Education, and Contemporary Dance Performance

KESHET DANCE COMPANY

The Company consists of movement artists who find their truest selves in the art of dance. The professional dance artists that bring life to Keshet Dance Company brilliantly remove the boundaries between “dance” and “community,” and they can usually be found sharing movement, mentorship, and laughter with each other; with visiting artists; with students of all ages, abilities and spaces; and with communities near and far.

KESHET CENTER FOR THE ARTS

30,000 sq. ft. of pure fun with studios, theater, gift shop, costume shop, community gathering spaces, and wearing the largest mural in the State of New Mexico. Keshet Center for the Arts is proud to be an anchor organization in the Midtown Arts and Entertainment District.

Community Impact Areas

SOCIAL JUSTICE THROUGH DANCE

Keshet’s Arts and Justice Initiatives work with a broad range of community partners at the intersection of arts and juvenile justice who envision a future where youth are empowered, and where the systems that serve them are transformed, centering the arts as a way to build the well-being of young people and their communities. Keshet’s work in this area includes:

  • Dance programming for incarcerated and paroling youth;
  • Post-release transition and detention alternatives support, through arts programming and mentorship;
  • Field research supporting policy and advocacy efforts towards meaningful systems change; and
  • Community conversations and learning opportunities centering youth voices with an eye towards resource connectivity across social sector and government agencies.

THE BUSINESS OF ART

The Keshet Ideas and Innovation Community (KIIC) champions the value of the artist and the arts economy. Through KIIC, Keshet:

  • Offers arts business classes for arts entrepreneurs throughout the year, and
  • Facilitates various artist residencies, providing access to rehearsal and performance space for movement artists.

COMMUNITY DANCE EDUCATION

Everyone can dance!

  • Keshet classes are available to all levels, ages, and abilities; from age 2 to 102.
  • To break down economic barriers to dance, Keshet offers unlimited, non-competitive scholarships through a sliding scale payment structure.
  • While many of Keshet’s dance education opportunities are multi-generational, we also offer specific programs for young dancers, pre-professional students, professional dancers, novice adults, older adults, dancers with disabilities, and more.

CONTEMPORARY DANCE PERFORMANCE

Keshet engages audiences in a wide range of contemporary dance performance experiences and opportunities.

  • Local performances range from community-wide collaborative productions to national and international visiting guest artists.
  • Keshet on tour brings the unique work of the Keshet company to regional, national, and international communities.

Land Acknowledgement

:

Land Acknowledgement

At Keshet, we believe that one of the roles of the arts is to make visible that which others have tried to make invisible. We also believe that it is not the responsibility of those whom others have attempted to make invisible to remind us that they are still here. 

 Therefore, as a committed ally and as artists, Keshet Dance and Center for the Arts wishes to acknowledge and recognize the Indigenous people and place where we stand, and the traditional, contemporary, and future lands of the Pueblo, Ancestral Pueblo, Navajo, Apache, and other Indigenous peoples who have had, and will have, a presence in New Mexico and who have in the past, and will in the future, travel this land. 

We give gratitude to the land itself and the people who have stewarded it throughout the generations. 

We pay our respects and honor their ancestors past, present, and future, and recognize their continued existence and contributions to our society.

We would also like to acknowledge the many peoples who did not arrive on this land by choice. We welcome everyone, however you arrived here, in this space, today and always.

Please take a moment to honor these ancestral grounds, to reflect on the complicated history of these lands which we gather on today, and to celebrate the resilience and strength of the peoples of these lands.

 

Thank you to the Indian Pueblo Cultural Center, Tricklock Company, and the New England Foundation for the Arts / National Dance Project for their contributions to the development of this statement.
