OFF THE
/ LANE

Our mission is to enrich and engage the creative community through continued education, outreach, and special projects.

Our vision is that artists of all races, genders, and ethnicities have easy accessibility to the tools and resources that they need to improve their careers and achieve their goals.

We value inclusion, accessibility and creativity in the development and implementation of our educational programming and cultivating a community built on mutual trust and respect.

Outreach.

Off The Lane’s Outreach programs are specifically geared towards giving back to the arts community. Our Mentorship Program pairs vetted professionals in the creative arts with motivated juniors and seniors at the university level as well as young professionals 18+ to help transition them from student to professional. Through the development of this program, colleges and universities across the country have utilized OTL as a strategic partner to acquire more connections and resources for their students and thus our School Partnership Program began!

Special Projects.

Through our special projects, we provide additional support to individuals, schools and other non-profit organizations to fulfill their need of creative and artistic guidance, community and education. The Ann Reinking Scholarship Program, developed in the Winter of 2021, honors the legacy of Annie by providing financial assistance for dedicated young dancers with a goal to thrive in NYC.

Continued Education

Continued Education goes back to the heart of why this organization began. Our President, originally a dancer turned entrepreneur, knows first hand how versatile training, education and networking can play directly into the success of one’s career. Our Speaker Series provides workshops from industry professionals across a variety of mediums to help educate and elevate their understanding. Our BOOST Program was created to help young artists build their skill sets and knowledge to attain their career goals.
