The Gabriella Foundation (Everybody Dance LA) (Los Angeles, CA, USA)

Want to join an amazing, fun, creative, collaborative team and a healthy, employee-focused work culture? The Gabriella Foundation (TGF),, a non-profit 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. Come be a part of the TGF family and make a difference in the lives of thousands!


TGF's original program, Everybody Dance!, began as a free after-school dance program in 2000 in an affordable housing project near downtown Los Angeles. Today, it is an award-winning program (we were presented with a National Arts and Humanities Youth Program Award by Michelle Obama in 2014) that serves nearly 5,000 students annually in both in-school and afterschool settings as the leading provider of high-quality dance instruction in the city's impacted, underserved communities.
