Home of Arthur Aviles Typical Theatre and The Bronx Dance Coalition
The New York Times describes our work as tenacious art that “sprouts like grass through concrete in the Bronx.” It is with that verve and your support that BAAD! has held space in the Bronx for the past 22 years.
Thank you for helping us stay BAAD! Your generosity is always deeply appreciated but this year it takes on a whole new level of meaning as we continue our artistic vision in these unprecedented times.
Whew! What a challenging year. BAAD!, like many arts groups, faced obstacles like loss of funding and no income from our space while still maintaining staff and paying rent and utilities on a building we couldn't use. BAAD! persevered and continued to blaze a path of justice and equity through art that’s empowering to women, people of color and the LGBTQ community.
The pandemic threw us a curve ball but with a dancer’s grace we responded by:
With love and appreciation,
HELP US STAY BAAD!
Our work garnered the attention of the PBS NewsHour
which on October 23rd profiled BAAD! as one of three organizations who were being innovative and keeping
the arts present and alive during the pandemic.
