New York Live Arts was founded in 2011 by a merger of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company and Dance Theater Workshop.
We respect the past and the 75 years of combined knowledge and expertise that New York Live Arts is founded on, and we are wild about the future.
— Bill T. Jones
New York Live Arts strives to create a robust framework in support of the nation's dance and movement-based artists through new approaches to producing, presenting and educating. In addition to our deep commitment to individual artists at all stages of their careers, we strive to create rich, meaningful experiences for our audiences by engaging them in ways that are intimate and thought-provoking. With our audience, we seek to become a place for dance that is vital to the fabric of social and cultural life in New York, America and beyond.
New York Live Arts is a re-imagining of the legacies of two extraordinary organizations, Dance Theater Workshop and the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company. Together we are embracing an adaptive approach to a field (and city) that has changed significantly since each founding organization's original creation.
