JOIN THE #NOMORESTARVINGARTISTS MOVEMENT!

It’s simple - we want dancers to thrive in the dance capital of the world: New York City.
The fact is 3 in 4 dancers cannot afford the groceries they need to succeed in their career.

WHAT

WHY

Because dancers have auditions, classes and rehearsals to worry about. Where their next meal is coming from shouldn’t be on that list. 

WHAT YOU GET

- Your choice of groceries (if you don’t see something you are looking for let us know! It will be there the next month.) to last you the month!!! For the beta program this is FREE. As the program matures it will be a nominal yearly fee based on a survey of what dancers have said they can afford.

- Recipes to make at home. Impress your friends with amazing recipes that are simple and easy to make! You'll be a professional chef in no time!

- Discounts at eateries all over the city!

- Health and nutritional advice to help you prolong your dance career!
