About New Victory Dance

Now in its 10th season! New Victory Dance celebrates the artistry and diversity of NYC dance with performances specifically curated for young audiences. Featuring a cross-section of internationally recognized New York City-based companies, New Victory Dance consists of three distinct programs each showcasing three unique dance companies. It’s a full summer of dance free for summer schools and camps!

The Program

Ephrat Asherie Dance


Inspired by the intergenerational club-life stories of a cast ranging in age from 28 to 80, UNDERSCORED explores the ever-changing physical and musical landscape of New York City’s underground dance community.

Barkha Dance Company

Vignettes of Kathak

This evocative dance piece embraces several elements of Indian musical expression, such as Hindustani classical notes, live singing and recitation of rhythmic compositions, rounded off with melodic use of syllables from the tabla and sitar.

Ballet Hispánico presents BHdos


This ballet with a Latin beat is inspired by choreographer Pedro Ruiz’s memories of his childhood in the Cuban countryside, reflecting both the beauty and the struggle of peasant life, set to a blend of Afro-Cuban and flamenco music

About the Dance Companies

Get to know the companies performing in New Victory Dance: Program A.

Ephrat Asherie Dance

Rooted in African American and Latine street and club dances, Ephrat Asherie Dance (EAD) explores the expansive narrative qualities of various vernacular forms including breaking, hip hop, house and vogue. EAD has presented work at the Apollo Theater, Jacob’s Pillow, Joyce Theater, NY City Center and Works & Process at the Guggenheim, among others.

Barkha Dance Company

Barkha Dance Company is a kathak dance organization that upholds the traditional lineage of kathak while uncovering new movement possibilities and means of storytelling within the form. The company has performed at venues such as Dance Theatre of Harlem, Jacob’s Pillow Inside/Out, Joyce Theatre and Little Island Dance Festival.

Ballet Hispánico presents BHdos

Handpicked by Artistic Director Eduardo Vilaro, the talented dancers of Ballet Hispánico’s second company form bridges: between the School of Dance and the professional Company, between Ballet Hispánico and the community, and between their own training and careers in dance. Performing some of Ballet Hispánico’s most beloved repertory, BHdos dancers bring Latina/o/x cultures to diverse communities throughout the nation.
