Every summer, Victory Dance celebrates the incredible artistry and diversity of NYC dance with performances specifically curated for young audiences.

Featuring a cross-section of highly accomplished and internationally recognized New York-based companies, Program A, Program B and Program C offer a summer of dance at The New Victory Theater for only $10 per ticket!

Part of the theater's initiative to provide daytime dance performances and dance education to City-run summer schools, subsidized day camps and social service agencies, Victory Dance reaches more than 4,000 NYC kids every year.

Victory Dance is supported, in part, by a generous grant from the Blavatnik Family Foundation in honor of Dawdie Appelson, a teacher, arts enthusiast and life-long supporter of the performing arts; The Jerome Robbins Foundation; Howard Gilman Foundation; Jody and John Arnhold; public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the City Council; the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature; and the Harkness Foundation for Dance.

The Program

Ephrat Asherie Dance
Odeon (Excerpts)

Inspired by the music of early 20th-century composer Ernesto Nazareth, the unique and universally appealing choreography of Ephrat Asherie layers breaking, hip-hop, house and vogue to a buoyant mix of live classical romantic music and popular Afro-Brazilian rhythms with musical direction by Asherie's brother and collaborator, Ehud Asherie.

Parul Shah Dance Company
Enduring Silence (Excerpts)

Drawing from the North Indian classical dance, Kathak, Enduring Silence takes inspiration from the resilient women who endure physical hardship and violence that persists under a canopy of cultural tradition.

Calpulli Mexican Dance Company
Mexika Tiawi! (Mexicans Onward!)

Roughly translated as "Mexicans Onward!" in the Náhuatl language, Mexika Tiawi! is a contemporary interpretation of ancient Aztec ritual dance by choreographers Noemy Hernandez, Daniel Jaquez and Alberto Lopez Herrera.

Dance Theatre of Harlem
Harlem on My Mind (Excerpts)

The world-famous Dance Theatre of Harlem uses music from the likes of Fats Waller, Duke Ellington and Wynton Marsalis to draw on a rich continuum of jazz and burst from the stage in a joyous and soulful ballet.
