GET UP AND DANCE WITH VICTORY DANCE
A FREE SUMMER PERFORMANCE SERIES
JUST FOR NEW YORK CITY KIDS
Each summer, VICTORY DANCE showcases the incredible artistry and diversity of New York City's top choreographers and dance companies and engages kids in an active exploration of dance with these artists.
VICTORY DANCE is FREE for Summer Education Partners and includes:
TICKETS TO DAYTIME VICTORY DANCE PERFORMANCES
A one-of-a-kind opportunity for 2nd through 12th grade kids to see a mixed bill of dance styles. The New Vic presents a new lineup each week—join us for one, two or all three programs. 10:1 ratio for Student and Chaperone tickets.
ENGAGEMENT WITH THE WORK ON STAGE
New Victory Teaching Artists and Education staff lead mini-workshops between each dance piece to engage the audiences' minds and bodies in an exploration of the work. After each performance, choreographers join the audience for a 15-minute Talk-Back.
NEW VICTORY SCHOOL TOOL RESOURCE GUIDE
The free, online New Victory School Tool® Resource Guide offers ready-to-implement, grade-appropriate activities for educators and includes information about the companies, choreographers and styles of dance.
FREE NEW VICTORY CLASSROOM WORKSHOPS
New Victory Teaching Artists lead sessions designed to engage kids in an active exploration of the different forms of dance they will see on stage.
