Licensing

Licensing the works of the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane Dance Company through New York Live Arts provides universities with the opportunity to engage in a well-rounded, extensive learning experience rooted in a significant work from the company's repertory. Our program is shaped by the core belief that a work of art should provide all students with the opportunity to learn about process, values, skills, and motivating ideas, as well as provide performance opportunities for select dancers.

Our educational activities provide unique, relevant, and inspiring experiences designed to create the next generation of thoughtful, engaged dance artists. For that reason, our focus extends beyond technical training. Our programs cultivate leadership, collaborative working methods, and rigorous creative investigation. Our teaching artists are selected for their passion and ability to share the unique working methods and history of the Company.

We look forward to being challenged and to creating programs with you, for you! The resources and interests of each dance program are unique, and we are happy to create a project that reflects your desires.
