At The Joyce, artists and audiences come together to experience the very best of dance. When you contribute to The Joyce, you'll do more than help us bring thousands of remarkable dance works to our theaters; you'll help us commission new work, provide rehearsal space grants and bring dance education to public schools. Programs at The Joyce Theater and Joyce SoHo embrace a spectrum of styles and traditions, from the time-honored to the untried and are designed to encourage, sustain, and educate a diverse audience.
Each year, The Joyce Theater Foundation's performances encompass over seventy-five dance companies and 2500 dance artists. Our residency program provides artists with rehearsal space and special support, and we reach over 1300 public school children through our comprehensive dance education program.
The Joyce Theater Foundation is a non-profit organization that must rely on the generosity of our friends and supporters to meet more than 50% of our annual budget. Individuals, foundations, and corporations can support our efforts in many ways. And, in return, we thank our donors by providing special early buying privileges, discounts, and other benefits.
