For nearly four decades, The Joyce has brought dance from across the country and around the world to audiences at its bustling New York City home. In these unprecedented times of self-quarantine and social distancing, the staff and visiting artists of The Joyce renew their commitment to ensuring the vitality of dance with Bring Dance Home, a curated digital collection of performances, interviews, podcasts, film, and classes aimed at bringing audiences together and closer than ever before—from the comfort and safety of their own home.
JoyceStream, a part of The Joyce’s Bring Dance Home, features full-length performances available weekly from artists and companies from current and past seasons of The Joyce’s programing, including several companies whose performances were affected by New York State’s moratorium on large public gatherings in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
