The Center and the Hudson Valley Queer Youth Project organize several teen dances throughout the school year.
October: National Coming Out Day Dance
The National Coming Out Day Teen Dance is a celebration for all LGBTQ and allied youth. There will be pizza, ice cream, music, dancing, and more!
April: Breaking the Silence Dance
Every year, hundreds of thousands of participants across the country take a vow of silence for one day as part of GLSEN’s Breaking the Silence events to highlight the impacts of anti-LGBT bullying & harassment on youth. As the day comes to a close, we celebrate our community’s resilience with the Breaking the Silence Day Dance.
