• choreographic mentorship

• performance series

• space grants and rentals

• open classes and training programs

• financial and digital technology advice

• leadership seminars

• town-hall–style gatherings

That's not to mention the Gibney Dance Company, whose members, in addition to performing, are enabled to start their own social justice–oriented initiatives under the Gibney umbrella.
