Mark DeGarmo & Dancers/Dynamic Forms Inc. Awarded Prestigious Grant
from New York State Regional Economic Development Council
Contact: Becca Weiss or 212-375-9214
New York, NY -- Mark DeGarmo & Dancers/Dynamic Forms Inc. is proud to announce an
award of $49,500 through Governor Andrew M. Cuomo’s New York State Regional Economic
Development Council (REDC) and awarded by the New York State Council on the Arts. The
prestigious award, designed to support organizations creating jobs across New York State, will
allow MDDF to expand our marketing and public relations capacity, by creating the resources
for MDDF to hire a marketing lead for two years 2015 - 2016. The marketing lead will work
with MDDF’s development department to achieve the performance metrics specified in the
organization’s marketing plan, thereby allowing MDDF to expand overall operations and
services. Of the $61.2 million awarded to projects in the New York City Region, MDDF is the
only dance organization represented among the 45 NYC arts-organization recipients and 71
projects awarded across the City’s 5 boroughs.
The REDC grant will aid in the expansion of MDDF’s programming, increasing visibility
for the organization and allowing greater numbers of students to have access to dance education.
In 2011, Governor Andrew M. Cuomo created The REDC initiative, establishing 10 Regional
Councils to develop long-term strategic plans for economic growth in their regions. REDC
awarded $709.2 million in economic development resource grants this year. Since the program’s
inception in 2011, REDC has awarded more than $2 billion to over 2,200 job creation and
community development projects across New York State. Mark DeGarmo & Dancers is proud to
be recognized as a job creator in the New York City Region with this highly competitive award.
The grant will allow MDDF to advance its mission to educate public school students and
the community surrounding them through the dance arts, promoting intercultural inquiry and
communication, as well as to create, perform, and disseminate original artistic work. In 2015
Mark DeGarmo & Dancers will partner with the New York City Department of Education to
provide dance education during the school day to over 1,500 New York City public school
students and their 200 teachers. Nearly 100% of MDDF’s PreK-5 students are from low income
families underserved in the arts and aesthetic education. Mark DeGarmo & Dancers’ programs
target Manhattan’s Lower East Side and Far Rockaway, Queens and serve over 13,000
individuals annually. For further information on MDDF, visit

MDDF’s programs are made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the
support of Governor Andrew Cuomo and the New York State Legislature.
