The Gabriella Foundation

The Gabriella Foundation, a nonprofit organization, was established in 1999 in memory of Gabriella Axelrad, a thirteen-year-old who loved to dance. The organization’s mission is to transform the lives of underserved youth in Los Angeles through high-quality dance instruction.

The Gabriella Foundation’s original program, everybody dance!, began as an after-school program in 2000 in an affordable housing project near downtown Los Angeles. Today, the program serves 2400 students, ages 4-21, and is the leading provider of high-quality, low-cost dance instruction in the city’s impacted, underserved communities.
