    Tickets start at $10! That’s cheaper than a movie or a cocktail! Take in a wonderful dance performance – their productions appeal to the newbie and the aficionado alike.

    I only come here every few years, usually when my mom is in town. And every time I'm reminded what a treasure it is. Always interesting performers, no bad seats in the house, and gentle ticket prices. Read more

    If you choose seats in the back of the theater, choose the ones that are where the raking starts, like row J and back. Easier to see.

    Must go see the Hubbard Chicago dance company - brilliant! I am not a modern dance connoisseur but it was captivating! The theatre is small enough that the cheaper seats are balcony views!

    Take a risk. See something beautiful or slightly scary in a small, intimate little theater. You're so close you can hear the dancers breathing. Read more

    The premier place to see established dance companies from around the world in NYC. Really not a bad seat in the house.

    Nice theatre. The rows go upward so everyone can see the stage no matter where you're sitting.

    Love the Joyce! Local theater with bigger than local performances. Not a budget breaker like Broadway.

    Sure there are other dance theaters, but there's none like the Joyce! I've worked there,I know! The best companies perform here and more than likely you'll be able to spot a few celebs in the crowd Read more

    Best seats are $35 loge. Unless you symmetry is important to you, you are so close to dancers, you can hear their breathes

    I think most of the seats have a good view. Mine was comfortable. Shows with live bands are great.

    Joyce Theater has been home to some of the city’s most avant-garde dance performances since 1982.

    Not a bad seat in the house. Spoken from the back row by a seat snob.

    Theater for dance performances in a beautiful, intimate space—with clues of being an old theater.

    For a drink after the show you can usually find the stagehands at flight 151 just south on 8th ave.

    Do not buy a ticket for Loge seat 317. It is an unbelievable rip off--$75 and it is partial view, tucked inside a railing, with literally no place for my legs. They do not advertise this!
