About Us

All programs scheduled to occur onsite are subject to state and federal government action, including but not limited to orders, laws, regulations and guidelines, as well as 92Y policies.

92Y reserves the right, in its sole discretion, to cancel or reschedule programs, events and activities, present them via the internet or other media, or otherwise implement measures it deems appropriate (such as, but not limited to, requiring vaccinated or unvaccinated individuals to wear masks, respect maximum capacity restrictions or adhere to social distancing guidance), in the event that 92Y believes that public health conditions, government actions or other circumstances related to the coronavirus warrant such actions. In all such instances, credits/refunds shall be in the sole discretion of 92Y.

Participants understand that, notwithstanding 92Y’s cleaning and disinfecting protocols and procedures in conformance with applicable State and Federal regulations, orders, laws and guidelines, 92Y cannot guarantee that its facilities or other individuals present in them are free of the COVID-19 coronavirus, and thus there is a risk involved with returning to 92Y’s facilities relating to exposure to COVID-19 and other infectious diseases, and the participant and their families could potentially be exposed to these risks by participating in activities at 92Y. By registering for and / or attending any 92Y program, participants, on their own behalf and on behalf of their heirs, successors, assigns, agents and representatives, voluntarily release 92Y and its officers, directors, employees, contractors, volunteers, agents and representatives (“92Y Parties”) from any and all claims, demands, causes of action or liability for any loss, damages, injuries or death (including but not limited to those caused by, arising from or related to COVID-19) that the participant or their families may suffer as a result of entering or participating in or use of 92Y’s facilities, equipment, services or activities, whether the same arises out of or results from any act, omission or conduct of any of the 92Y Parties, negligent or otherwise.

Ticket Policies

Programs, prices and dates are subject to change. There are no refunds unless 92Y cancels an event. If you are unable to use your tickets, you may turn them in to the Box Office up to three hours prior to performance as a tax-deductible contribution. In the case of a postponed or rescheduled event, 92Y is not required to offer refunds if the event is rescheduled within 12 months of the original date. No cash refunds.

Ticket Service Fee

Tickets to events are subject to a service fee of up to $5.00 per ticket or subscription. Please remember to bring your ticket to every performance.

Registration Policies

92Y reserves the right to cancel classes and workshops and to change scheduling. 92Y further reserves the right to substitute instructors or speakers when warranted. Please note that, when cancellations or changes occur, they are often made within one to three days of the program start date. If your program is cancelled, 92Y will make every effort to notify you by telephone or email. For cancelled programs, 92Y will do everything possible to help you find a substitute program; however, when this is not possible, you will receive a 100% refund of the cost of the program. Please register early to help ensure that programs proceed as scheduled.

Confirmation Letters

Your class ID, included in all confirmation letters, is required for admission to all classes and workshops. Please have your class ID with you at all times. If you do not receive one, please contact the Box Office.

When applicable, you will also be given a calendar indicating days that your program will not be held. Please keep it for reference, as this calendar may not necessarily conform to 92nd Street Y's published holiday schedule.

We may ask for contact information for every person attending a program, in addition to the ticket purchaser.

We may be required to ask this information for one of three reasons:

  • By request of the instructor, the program requires a complete attendee roster.
  • The class must be purchased with a partner and requires the names of both attendees.
  • Certain high profile events may have security restrictions that require us to collect full names and email addresses of all patrons attending. Please be aware that a valid photo ID corresponding to the name provided may be required for entry.

Your privacy is important to us. At 92Y, we are fully committed to protecting your privacy.

Registration Processing Fee

Classes and workshops are subject to a processing fee based on the total dollar amount of your purchase. This fee is payable via all methods of purchase.

If the total amount of your registration purchase (for classes, workshops and tours) is:
Up to $75, your fee is $7
From $75.01-$150, your fee is $12
From $150.01-$200, your fee is $17
