Every summer, Victory Dance celebrates the incredible artistry and diversity of NYC dance with performances specifically curated for young audiences.

Featuring a cross-section of highly accomplished and internationally recognized New York-based companies, Program A, Program B and Program C offer a summer of dance at The New Victory Theater for only $10 per ticket!

Part of the theater's initiative to provide daytime dance performances and dance education to City-run summer schools, subsidized day camps and social service agencies, Victory Dance reaches more than 4,000 NYC kids every year.

Victory Dance is supported, in part, by the Jerome Robbins Foundation, Howard Gilman Foundation, Jody and John Arnhold, public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council, the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and the Harkness Foundation for Dance.
