EAST VILLAGE DANCE PROJECT (EVDP), based in New York City, was founded in 1997 as a dance development program for youth age 4-18, under the artistic direction of Martha Tornay. EVDP offers classes in modern, ballet, pointe, improvisation and beginning choreography. EVDP performs annually in New York and has been at La MaMa Moves! for three seasons. The program has been recognized for its innovative approach to dance and education, and for offering pre-professional classes to all, regardless of social or economic situation. EVDP Students have also performed at Pace University, NYU Skirball Center, Abrons Arts Center, Vanaver Caravan Dance Festival, with Keigwin + Company, and at Lincoln Center Out-of-Doors. Past guest choreographers have included Nicole Wolcott, Ellen Cornfield and Molly Lieber. In January 2011, EVDP and GOH Productions opened Avenue C Studio as a permanent home.

At EVDP our mission is to provide dance classes to all, regardless of financial situation.
