Brooklyn Boulders Co-Founder Honored for Commitment to Community Service

Dancewave is a Brooklyn-based company who believes in the power of dance to transform lives. By facilitating access to dance classes for youth and vulnerable populations throughout NYC, Dancewave makes it their goal to give kids the opportunity to benefit from learning and creating dance.

Each year, Dancewave holds a Spring Gala to help raise awareness for their mission. Bringing together a diverse group of people to celebrate community, the arts and dance – the Spring Gala is one of Brooklyn’s premiere cultural fundraisers.

This year, Brooklyn Boulders is honored to have our co-founder, Lance Pinn, be selected as one of the special honorees! Chosen alongside Lance are former State Senator and current Borough President of Brooklyn, Eric Adams, and Dance Magazine Editor at Large, Wendy Perron.

Lance has been a public servant for his entire life, and Brooklyn Boulders was built upon a philanthropic ideal: to exist to inspire. In his youth, Lance took part in missions to build homes, organized groups to visit local nursing homes and organized efforts to pick up litter throughout his community.

In his adult life, Lance is extremely active within the Brooklyn community. In addition to serving on the North Flatbush Business Improvement District, and being a board member on Community Six, Lance recently celebrated his fifth year of service on the Board for Friends of Douglass Greene Park.

Brooklyn Boulders and Dancewave certainly have an easy time relating to one another. With mutual focuses on community and the arts, and efforts to make their passions more affordable for NYC youth – such as founding the Brooklyn Boulders Foundation in 2010 – this is one company and event we are more than happy to support.

Dancewave’s Spring Gala 2014 will be held at BAM Fisher on May 8th. The event includes a cocktail reception and amazing dance performances followed by the awards ceremony.
