"Since 1984, Ice Theatre of New York has been dedicated to the development and promotion of figure skating as a performing art. Through community outreach, this organization enables New York City's public school children to get out on the ice and learn to skate. The New Works and Young Artists Series is widely recognized as an innovative educational program that utilizes figure skating as an effective and empowering confidence-builder and teaching tool."

Mindy Aloff

"I’ve been a member of the audience for Ice Theatre of New York going back to the early 1990s…So, when I say that this year’s gala offered an ideal calling card for ITNY in terms of genres of skating, range of virtuosity, variety of choreographic approaches, and balance between outgoing performance quality and classic reserve, I’m assessing the evening against some spectacular predecessors….ITNY has always emphasized the importance of ice dance choreography, working with dancemakers from the ballet (Twyla Tharp, Peter Martins, Edward Villella), modern dance (Lar Lubovitch, Jacqulyn Buglisi), and performance art (Ann Carlson). The spirit of John Curry, which prompted the company’s founding, continues!"

Mark Levine

"For four decades, ITNY has been cultivating and showcasing groundbreaking ice dancing. You have changed the face of figure skating, pushing the boundaries of movement and increasing diversity across the discipline. I’m especially grateful for ITNY’s many free performances across the city and your outreach program for at-risk public school students."

New York Times: Gia Kourlas

“Ensemble groups like Ms. North’s Ice Theatre of New York® may be the best hope for the future simply because they recall what skating has the potential to be: dancing on air.”
