Ice Theatre of New York® (ITNY) is proud to provide the New Works and Young Artists Series (NWYAS) for New York City K-12 public school students at LeFrak Center at Lakeside, Prospect Park, 171 East Drive, Brooklyn, NYC at 10:30am on March 14, 21 and 28, 2023. This will be ITNY's seventh year of presenting the programming live, and the first time providing live programming for NWYAS since the onset of the pandemic. The performances are free and open to the public. For more information, visit https://icetheatre.org/2023-new-works-and-young-artists-series.html.
The programs will include a free ice dance show and a one-hour Pre-Olympic skating clinic taught by ITNY teaching professionals and junior apprentices. For most students, this is their first time seeing a professional ice dance show and discovering this new art form. The age-appropriate works performed include both repertory and new works performed by ITNY professional ensemble members, young apprentice performers aged 6-16, and guest artists. Students are particularly thrilled to see apprentices their own age performing. And for many students, this is their first time ice skating with professional mentorship.
During the last live sessions in 2020, 521 Brooklyn students were introduced to the joy and artistry of dancing on ice, and even more will be reached this year.
About Ice Theatre of New York®
Founded by Moira North, ITNY's mission is to celebrate and advance dance on ice as a performance art. Through its performances in both traditional and site-specific venues, ITNY presents ice dance that helps to open one's eyes to seeing skating in new and unexpected ways. ITNY was the very first ice dance company to receive dance program funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. icetheatre.org
