We are very glad to see our young dance-lovers and their grown-ups slowly returning to The Joyce Theater! And with the new guidelines and vaccinations established for children under 12 years old, we are thrilled to welcome back children attending the theater using Joyce Jr. memberships or purchasing a Kid’s Ticket to a Family Matinee. Older teens are welcomed to attend any performance and everyone must adhere to The Joyce Health and Safety Protocols.
