Wacheva Cultural Arts

On any given evening, One Village Dance Center is bustling with children and adults who have come together to enjoy a unique blend of classes and camaraderie. In 2009, Wacheva Cultural Arts, specializing in adult multicultural dance and drum classes, and Parents Promoting Dance, an arts organization dedicated to developing dancers in Central New York, partnered to rehabilitate a dilapidated garage in the Westcott district. They transformed it into two adjoining dance studios, envisioning a vibrant place where adults and children could learn and enjoy multicultural and concert dance together.

A Community Foundation grant covered the cost of a studio’s new dance floor and mirrors. Enrollment has grown by
more than twenty percent since the new center opened with help from the Community Foundation’s grant, making it
Where the Smart Money Gives Back.
