“Enough!” is a dance-driven film featuring the children of National Dance Institute that serves as an anthem for gun safety. Inspired by the chorus of young voices in our country demanding reform, this video is a collaboration between filmmaker and former dancer Ezra Hurwitz, dancer and actor Robert Fairchild, and National Dance Institute. Other partners include Everytown for Gun Safety, choreographer James Alsop, best known for her work with Beyonce, illustrator Marcel Dzama, and singer-songwriter Sia, who’s newly released single, “I’m Still Here,” is featured in the video.

In a world of gun violence trauma, this film provides a powerful opportunity for young dancers to express themselves beyond the ability of words, and contribute to a public discourse that is painfully relevant to their generation. The film features 130 children (ages 7-17) who engage in NDI’s programs in New York City public schools.

The arts can change lives. The arts can save lives. Let’s do this together.

National Dance Institute (NDI) was founded in 1976 by New York City Ballet principal dancer Jacques d’Amboise in the belief that the arts have a unique power to engage all children—regardless of background, ability, or socioeconomic status—and motivate them toward excellence. Since its founding, NDI has impacted the lives of over two million children.
