For the past 20 years, Dance Theatre Etcetera (DTE) has proudly served Red Hook and other low income communities throughout NYC with arts education programs, site-specific performances and community cultural events such as the annual Red Hook Fest.  DTE serves an average of 900 students annually through year round arts education programs at high schools in low income communities in Brooklyn and Queens, and an additional 5000 audience members through site-specific performances and festivals.  In the aftermath of Sandy, several of DTE’s school partners had their budgets slashed and were forced to cancel DTE programming for the rest of the academic year.  Funds from this campaign will go toward restoring these important arts educations programs.
