National Water Dance's Response to Houston

All of us at National Water Dance watch in horror and humility at the unfolding catastrophe that Harvey has wrought on Texas. This is just the beginning of an ongoing story of loss, bravery and recovery. We urge everyone to reach out in any way they can to support the relief efforts knowing that the need will be there long after the story leaves the front pages. No action is too small but "no action" is not a choice.

Here are some local organizations that have an ongoing presence in the Houston area. They have been recommended to us by people we know who are involved with them.

Houston Area Women’s Center
The Hurricane Harvey Community Relief Fund
Arts programs in the Houston Independent School District

A Celebration of Arts in Action

National Water Dance (NWD), created and directed by Dale Andree, is an artist driven collective of dancers and educators stretching from coast to coast and from Alaska to Florida.  NWD creates simultaneous, site-specific performances with movers of all ages and experience, bringing attention to the pressing issues of water in the United States. National Water Dance believes that our environment is the most pressing issue of this generation and that artists need to take the lead in addressing it. As dancers we want to use our bodies to create a community that cries out for action.

"It’s about reconnecting our sense of self and soul with our waterways and oceans."
Celine Cousteau, granddaughter of Jacques Cousteau

Come join us!
