Transform your outdoor site into a dancer’s rehearsal studio! Book a New Victory Dance Jam and a professional dancer and two New Victory Teaching Artists will travel to you and lead the group in a Covid-safe interactive creativity session. Kids will watch a live performance, react, respond and create choreography for an experience that is part performance, part workshop and full of fun!
Dance Jams are one resource within New Victory’s free Education Summer Partnership.
All New Victory Dance Jams are based around an 11am start time and include about 45 minutes of active student engagement.
Your outdoor site! New Victory will arrive early to set up the Covid-safe open outdoor event area, performance space and audience seating.
Book as few as 10 tickets and as many as 40! New Victory Dance Jams can accommodate up to 40 people from your program. Have more than 40 kids? Partners can book multiple Dance Jams throughout the summer.
Dance Jams are staffed by a professional dancer, two New Victory Teaching Artists and an Education staff tour manager.
Read on to see if your space has what it takes to accommodate New Victory Dance Jams.
Although the New Victory will endeavor to adapt to as many locations and individual situations as possible, your space will need to fulfill some minimum requirements:
As with all New Victory programs and performances, we do our best to accommodate audiences with a diverse spectrum of needs. Please review and gather pertinent information ahead of reserving New Victory Dance Jams.
New Victory Education and Production have worked together to create a fun-filled, Covid-safe experience and want to ensure that everyone can enjoy New Victory Dance Jams. To ensure the health and safety of participating artists and your staff and students, please review.
The New Victory is closely monitoring all CDC and New York State recommendations about Covid-safety protocols (PDF). We adhere to the following policies for our artists and staff:
Each hosting organization should share its own site policies with New Victory staff so that we also meet your requirements.
*New Victory will provide battery-powered speakers for music and sound amplification. According to NYC guidelines, an amplified audio permit via the NYPD is required. New Victory will offer instructions for the permit application process upon Dance Jam confirmation.
Things change! Review our ticketing and cancellation policies and what to do when weather gets in the way.
