As some of you may have read in previous posts, I have been working on a volunteer project with The Joyce Theater Foundation to re-design the interior space of the theater’s Dance Art New York (DANY) Studios and spruce it up for the many people who use the studios on a daily basis.
With a singular mission to serve and support the art of dance, The Joyce Theater Foundation is a major catalyst for dance creation and performance, and brings the best in dance from around the world to annual audiences of over 140,000 in New York City. Responsible for The Joyce Theater in Chelsea for three decades and Joyce SoHo for 15 years, The Joyce saved the venue now known as DANY Studios in 2009 to provide much-needed affordable rehearsal space for the dance community.
“When The Joyce took over responsibility for DANY Studios and learned of our wonderfully artistic and creative new neighbor, Vicente Wolf, we reached out for his help with bringing these rehearsal studios back to life. His amazing and generous support of this special project is remarkable, and we truly can’t wait to implement his vision.” - Linda Shelton, Executive Director, The Joyce Theater Foundation
