Joyce Theater

Location: The Joyce Theater and Chelsea Factory
Featuring: SW!NG OUT with live music by the Eyal Vilner Big Band.

The Joyce Theater proudly returns home to host the 2023 Annual Gala. This year’s festivities will honor Joyce Board Chair Emerita Virginia A. Millhiser and celebrate Executive Director Linda Shelton’s milestone 30th anniversary and her continuing steadfast leadership. The evening will include the Joyce production and smash hit SW!NG OUT with special guest artists Kyle Abraham, Ayodele Casel, and a few more surprises! Following the performance, an elegant dinner will take place nearby at Chelsea Factory, where the Eyal Vilner Big Band and the SW!NG OUT dancers will invite everyone to the dance floor to share in the exuberance of a “dance jam.”  The gala is an integral part of annual fundraising goals that directly support The Joyce’s mission to bring a broad spectrum of the art of dance to you!
