Celebrating 75+ years of Dance at 92nd Street Y

In 2009/10 the 92nd Street Y Dance Center celebrated its 75th Anniversary.

As one of New York's founding institutions supporting contemporary dance and as the oldest U.S. dance institution still in its original location, we have much to celebrate. Therefore, during the next few years the Dance Center will be inviting new and returning dance artists, patrons and lovers of dance of all generations to teach, perform, reminisce and dance with us!
