For this season’s final Arts Break, we’re taking a five-day tour of performing arts around the world, celebrating a handful of the many nations whose artistic traditions have graced the New Victory stage. So, pack your suitcase, buckle that seatbelt and prepare for dep-art-ure!
Kickstart your creativity with 15 weeks worth of free arts activities! Guided by New Victory Teaching Artists, Arts Break is a curriculum designed for the millions of families stuck at home to incorporate the performing arts into their learning.
New Victory opens new worlds to kids and families through extraordinary performances, education and engagement programs
While the New Victory Theater building remains temporarily closed until it is safe to reopen, staff continues the good work of making the performing arts as accessible as possible. Until we can gather again, discover what we've created for you to explore at home.
For many NYC school kids, New Victory represents their very first live theater experience. Typically serving 40,000 students a season, New Victory Education offers kids an opportunity to experience international productions from the heart of New York City’s Theater District. Over the last 20 years, more than half a million NYC school kids have discovered new cultures and art forms, and more importantly, new ways of seeing themselves as creative individuals.
Through its roster of education programs, including professional development for teaching artists, New Victory has enhanced the lives of children, their families and arts educators.
