Business Manager Job at MOVE|NYC|

Inspired by the rise of the Black Lives Matter movement in 2013 and the lack of diversity Nigel Campbell and Chanel DaSilva witnessed throughout their artistic training and professional career, Chanel and Nigel co-founded MOVE|NYC| in 2015 – a Black-led nonprofit with a mission to cultivate greater diversity and equity in the dance profession and beyond. What started as an intensive 3-week tuition-free summer for gifted New York teens with a budget of $25,000 has grown in just 7 years into a cutting-edge arts and social justice organization with 6 mentorship programs, artistic training and professional development with a 100% enrollment rate and a growing budget of $800,000.
