PUNTO Presents : show UP - a Fundraiser for the Arts

  • PUNTO Space 325 W. 38th Street, Storefront #3 New York, NY, 10018 USA (map)

Join Uptown Pilates and Punto Space for a very special collaborative event supporting the National Endowment for the Arts!

Last month, we saw the proposed elimination of the National Endowment for the Arts (NEA), a critical source of support for local dance and arts groups serving the people of the metropolitan area. The budget plan eliminates other cultural agencies, including the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute for Museum and Library Service, and the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, and reduces funding to key U.S. Department of Education and U.S. Department of State programs focused on arts education and cultural diplomacy.

Now more than ever, we must come together to protect the arts that inspire us, employ us, enrich us, and propel us forward. We at Uptown Pilates strongly believe that change happens through movement and that movement heals. Our Uptown community, heavily populated by artists, is coming together with the Punto Arts community for an afternoon of health, wellness, and strength. Whether you are an artist or a lover of the arts, everyone is welcome!

3pm-4pm: Pilates mat class led by Uptown Pilates instructors Nicole Kontolefa and Michelle Yard
4pm-4.30pm: Presentation by Nettles Artists Collective with refreshments, giveaways, and more!
4.30pm-5.15pm: Yoga x Pilates Masterclass with Najla Said

**please bring your own mat**

ALL proceeds from this event will go directly to the National Endowment for the Arts! $10 suggested donation.

If you are unable to attend but would still like to contribute, keep an eye out around the studios for donation buckets or donate online.

We will also be selling raffle tickets at all Uptown Pilates locations leading up to the event and at the door. PRIZES INCLUDE:
