The Community for Urban Dance & Art (CUDA) is a non-profit organization designed for the educational purpose of providing a positive and creative outlet for inner-city youth to practice and showcase diverse art forms founded in the urban culture. With the goal to stimulate a young person's talents, enhance self-confidence, personal growth, and appreciation for the visual and performing arts, CUDA has teamed up with diverse groups of artists, musicians, dancers and community organizers to make great programs and workshops available for the youth of Hudson County and surrounding areas. We also aim to emphasize and develop skills in self-discipline, teamwork, leadership skills, decision making skills, appreciation of multicultural differences, and community service. With your individual help and support, together we can make our own communities thrive by providing more opportunities for our young people to reach their highest potential.
