Dear Friend of Ice Theatre of New York,
Here is a compilation of our Artistic and Outreach Programming in 2023!
It's hard to imagine how we could exist as a non-profit artistic ice dance company were it not for your support!
We hope you will sustain us with a year-end donation. Your generous good will helps continue the creative spark, the dedication and artistry that take the joy and beauty of dancing on ice to diverse audiences.
Highlights of 2023 Include:
Our Benefit Gala and Home Season Performances, where we had four premieres!
"Thank you to Ice Theatre of New York for a safe space for us to be our authentic selves and continuing to value the arts and importance to dance in the world and bringing that to the ice. Also, thank you for such an honor to receive the Choreography Award!!" - Rohene Ward, 2023 Choreography Honoree
We honored USA Champion & Olympian Jason Brown, awarded the Choreography Award to Rohene Ward and awarded the Alumni Award to Marni Halasa at our annual Benefit Gala - with the help of our Co-Chairs Elana Siegel, Alicia Hall Moran, and Emily Hughes.

At our Fall Frolic Performance and Fundraiser we honored Diversify Ice Foundation with the Will Sears Dare Greatly Award.
“What a night of great skating, scrumptious dinner, lively chats, excellent speakers and a huge success for the Ice Theatre of New York!! The skating show was well attended and had a perfect flow of talent and teams. The “dancing on ice” theme was well presented by our performers... I had the opportunity to chat with many of our celebrities (Tai Babilonia 1979 World Pairs Champion) and the Will Sears award honoree of Joel Savary of Diversify Ice. He spoke very passionately and definitely inspired the attendees..." - Doug Haw, ITNY Board Member
