Detailed Description

ITNY - SPRING FLING CELEBRITY SKATE
Includes performances by the ITNY Ensemble and special Celebrity guests. Judged by Dick Buttons, Moira North, and David Parsons.

Founded in 1984 by Moira North, Ice Theatre of New York (ITNY) has changed the face of figure skating by creating works that integrate the sensibilities of contemporary dance, music and art. Through its performances in both traditional and alternative venues, ITNY presents on-ice dances that challenge the perceptions and conventional definitions of figure skating.

ITNY was the first ice dance company to receive dance program funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. In addition to building and performing works of artistic merit, ITNY also reaches out to the next generation of skaters and audiences through its exemplary education, community outreach and training programs.

Now that ITNY is in its 25th Anniversary Season, we celebrate a quarter decade of innovative performances and enriching outreach programs. Over the years, Ice Theatre has presented a host of free public performances at The Rink at Rockefeller Plaza, The Pond at Bryant Park, and at The World Ice Arena in Queens. We have had the opportunity to perform inter-nationally as well, most recently in the French Alps in the towns of Courchevel and Grenoble. In FY10 we expanded our outreach program, the New Works and Young Artist Series, to serve children in Queens, in addition to the original series at Riverbank State Park in Manhattan. In FY11 we plan to add programming in Battery Park City, Manhattan. This program now provides free performances and skating instruction to more than 3,000 public school students each year.

Thank you for supporting Ice Theatre of New York. Your patronage gives us the ability to work toward our mission, and we are honored to have you commemorate our achievements.

“Since its establishment in 1984, the Ice Theatre of New York has combined the best of ice skating, dance and theater to create cutting edge performances that represent the very best New York’s creative community has to offer.” — Mayor Michael Bloomberg

ITNY also receives funding from the Carnegie Corporation, the Lisa McGraw Figure Skating Foundation, the Will Sears Fund, and its generous private patrons.
