Millennium Dance Company
United States of America

The Millennium Dance Company at Perry Studios has a singular focus of artistic education that promotes diversity and excellence in the student's whole life, not just at dance class.

From January 4, 2014

Millennium Dance Company has served over 3000 dancers in its occupancy and currently serve over 140 active dance students enrolled in various classes of Ballet, Modern, Tap, Hip-Hop and African. The long legacy of the company and Perry Studios is valuable in Harlem’s cultural history.

The legacy of this institution is being threatened by eviction in their current location at 2542 Frederick Douglass Blvd and 135th Street which they have inhabited for the last 20 years.

The owner, Lloyd A. Williams, CEO/President of Greater Harlem Chamber of Commerce, is demanding a rent increase and payment arrears that put the dance school in jeopardy and takes away the cultural education of our children who thrive in dance.

The parents and supporters of the Millennium Dance company at Perry Studios have come together to put a stop to the eviction and put notice to the owner that his current actions are completely unacceptable. Perry Studios holds a dear place in the hearts of the parents as a safe haven for our girls in the community.

With current expenses the school cannot operate with the unexpected increase in rent and stated arrears and we are asking for your help!

We, the undersigned, call for Mr. Lloyd A. Williams to give Millennium Dance Company at Perry Studios a proper lease and reasonable rent to continue to operate in business at 2542 Frederick Douglass Blvd to serve the youth of harlem.
