House of the Roses Volunteer Dance Company, Inc. (HOTR) brings the joy of dance, movement, and creative self-expression to at-risk children and youth in New York City homeless shelters and community centers. Through free weekly dance and movement workshops with dedicated Volunteer Teaching Artists  -- and opportunities to perform their own choreography and be celebrated for their hard work and artistry at special events -- our children discover the power of dance to lift us up and the rewards of teamwork and participation in a creative community.

HOTR is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.
