Welcome to the exciting world of Ice Theatre of New York! ITNY was established in 1984 as the nation's first not-for-profit ice dancing ensemble with the purpose of developing ice skating as a performing art. Ice Theatre has performed in venues from arenas to practice rinks and in weather conditions ranging from the heat of summer to 20 degrees below zero near the arctic circle. However, one of Ice Theatre's most exciting formats is in a theater on the proscenium stage. It combines the intimacy of a theater performance with athletic artistry and the drama of stage lighting. The ice surface for this type of show is set on the stage, giving the audience the experience of skaters gliding, jumping and spinning close to their seats; viewers even feel an occasional spray of snow from under the skaters' dancing blades. Translating the vision of ice and dance choreographers onto a rink, ITNY merges innovative dance with the grace of figure skating to create a new art form. Experience Ice Theatre at your venue today!

Special Events for Corporations
Make your next corporate event something different, something to
remember! Everyone has been to functions in hotel
ballrooms. But, who has been welcomed to that ballroom by an
ensemble of graceful figure skaters? Whatever your event or
project - company dinner, product launch, holiday party, commercial -
Ice Theatre of New York can work with you to create a unique atmosphere
that guests will never forget. Your location has no ice?
That's not a problem for Ice Theatre. Using our sheets of plastic ice, we can skate anywhere. Skaters can be your guests' welcoming sight
or can be the highlight of your event. Ice Theatre has provided artistic performances for corporate events, product launches, movie openings and private weddings, both on ice at rinks & arenas and on artificial ice. We can create an atmosphere, provide a background setting or do a full performance. Ice Theatre has performed at
events as various as the opening of Batman: the Movie, fashion shows on the icy catwalk of the
Rink at Rockefeller Center Plaza and a private balcony of a Fifth Avenue apartment.

"We were delighted to work with you and your crew on our event at Rockefeller Center. The ice show you put together for our clients was well thought out and beautifully executed, and our clients truly enjoyed watching your talented performers. Thanks for indulging our clients by having two of your skaters flank our VIPs while they delivered their speeches in sub-zero temperatures. The teachers who assisted our guests during the skating party afterwards were extremely helpful and certainly built on the festive nature of the event. I must say that your entire staff is accommodating and professional and a joy to work with.
-Karen M. Shackman, Shackman Associates New York

"Words cannot express my thanks to you and your wonderful crew for a job extremely well done last Saturday at Amy and Jaime's Wedding. The skaters were a tremendous hit, and guests (and staff alike) were blown away that we actually had skating in our Penthouse Lobby. Nothing but rave reviews. Your entire staff is accommodating and professional and a joy to work with. I only hope that we will have use for your talented group in the future."
