The Joyce Theater is New York City’s main dance theater after the David H. Koch Theater in Lincoln Center and New York City Center in Midtown. The Joyce is the New York City home of many dance companies based in New York, the Americas, and abroad.

Regardless of where in the world you or your family are from, The Joyce Theater is the New York City theater where you are mostly likely to find a little bit of home and heritage.

The Joyce Foundation is more than a dance theater. The Joyce Foundation is one of America’s important dance producers.

It was established by LuEsther T. Mertz, whose family founded the direct marketing company, Publishers Clearing House. The theater is named after her daughter.

One of the great things about The Joyce is that we, as Latins, are very much included.

Artists are always a little ahead of the politicians. The Joyce Foundation has a special relationship with Cuban contemporary dance.

The Joyce leadership started doing cultural exchange tours to Cuba in 2001. In 2013, they sent noted Brooklyn choreographer Ronald K. Brown to Cuba with a commission to choose a Cuban dance company and choreograph a piece for them. He chose Malpaso Dance Company.

The Joyce brought Malpaso to the States as soon as relations opened up in 2014 and continues to develop the company with new commissions every year. Malpaso has grown into Cuba’s leading international contemporary dance company.
