“A community of support for all dancers entering — or continuing their creative years”

Dancers Over 40 was created as a not-for-profit organization to provide a community of support in response to the needs of mature dancers, choreographers and related artists. Our goals include seeking educational opportunities, presenting seminar and panel discussions and social events geared to topics relevant to mature dancers, whose present-day concerns are focused on their ability to continue to live and work in a creative environment, and continue that legacy to the younger generation about to begin their journey.

The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting us all, none more than the mature artists that we celebrate on our website – and especially our DO40 members, many of whom have weathered storms like this in the past. Broadway is temporarily closed, as are most Off-Broadway productions, touring companies and large venue events. And unfortunately, our DO40 Spring events have been postponed to the Summer and Fall. Please follow all the CDC guidelines to stay healthy, practice social distancing to reduce the chance of infection, get a flu shot (although this will not protect you from COVID-19, it is highly recommended), wash hands regularly and do not touch your face with unwashed hands. We look forward to continue sharing our History, Our Legacy and Our Lives with you, especially the next generation of theater and dance performers.
