Impact 210's Community Initiatives

Share Article

IMPACT 210 is partnering with Groove With Me, Inc. (GWM), a non-profit dance organization located in Spanish Harlem that provides free dance classes to kids.

Youths engaged in constructive recreational activities are less likely to be involved in substance abuse, sexual activity, crime and violence than their inner-city counterparts who do not have access to these resources. With this in mind, IMPACT 210 is partnering with Groove With Me, Inc. (GWM), a non-profit dance organization located in Spanish Harlem that provides free dance classes to kids.

"This is a great opportunity for my kids to experience things they wouldn't normally have the opportunity to," explains Abby Rosin, Director, GWM. "They can experience actual photo shoots, and we'll be able to add drama to our curriculum." IMPACT 210 looks forward to helping these young kids become tomorrow's stars -- today! Impact 210 will help our kids see what it actually takes to make it in the entertainment industry."

Offering everything from photography sessions and acting workshops to resume writing seminars, IMPACT 210 can help guide young talent in their pursuit of a career in the entertainment industry.

"I can't think of anything better than watching young kids acquire the skills they need to improve their chances of success in their career, and also to better themselves as individuals," says Michael Fomkin, CEO, IMPACT 210. "You're never too young to learn how to do things right!"

Newly launched in 2005, IMPACT 210 welcomes talent to visit our 5,000 square foot state of the art facility, conveniently located in SOHO, the fashion center of New York City, featuring both a spacious casting and photo studio with digital retouch services, conference rooms, office space, a computer center with wi-fi internet access, full service café, plasma TVs and a DJ booth, available for holding open calls, photo shoots, meetings, presentations and workshops.
