Performance Update: American Dance Platform

In effect Tuesday, January 11, 2022 through Sunday, January 16, 2022

While vaccine and mask protocols and negative PCR testing continue to allow venues to safely move forward with performances, The Joyce Theater has made the difficult decision to cancel our 2022 American Dance Platform from January 11-16, 2022. Our upcoming performances of Ayodele Casel: Chasing Magic will continue as scheduled from January 4-9.

This cancellation is a result of the current public health emergency in New York City and across the United States, due to the surge of the Omicron variant of the COVID-19 virus. Given the nature of our American Dance Platform program, in which companies travel from across the country to New York City to perform in a shared program and would be in close quarters with each other and our Joyce staff, we find the prudent decision to be to cancel the performances for the health and safety of our community. 

We apologize for the disappointment and inconvenience this causes our ticket holders, however, we trust that audiences will agree that safety must be at the forefront of our return to live performances. 


The Joyce is providing current ticket holders to the cancelled performances with the following options: 

  • Donate your ticket to The Joyce Theater
  • Request a refund of your ticket purchase
