About The Organization

BAAD! The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance

The Bronx Academy of Arts and Dance creates, produces, presents, and supports the development of cutting edge and challenging works in contemporary dance and all creative disciplines which are empowering to women, people of color, and the LGBTQ community.

BAAD! brings a queer and dissident perspective to the socio-political dialogue and culture of our neighborhood, borough, and city through first-rate art. Through partnerships, grassroots organizing projects which parallel performances, and programming which gives voice to artists from underrepresented demographics, BAAD! aids in dismantling paradigms of injustice such as sexism, racism and homophobia in the Bronx and beyond.
