The gala, following the performance, will also feature cocktails, dinner, and an award ceremony. This year’s gala will honor Olympic ice dance champions Jayne Torvill and Christopher Dean, and present an Ice Angel Award to Betty Wasserman, as well as Alumni Awards to Darlene Parent and Wade Corbett. The gala is co-chaired by Olympic coaches Brian Order and Tracy Wilson.

“We are thrilled to be honoring Jayne and Christopher at our 35th Anniversary Gala, not only for their breathtakingly original - and sport-changing - Olympic Gold Medal performance (followed by many others), but also for their continuing, always highly creative contributions to our skating world, most recently the acclaimed television series, Dancing on Ice,” said ITNY Founder and Artistic Director, Moira North.

About Ice Theatre of New York

Founded by Moira North, ITNY's mission is to celebrate and advance dance on ice as a performance art. Through its performances in both traditional and site-specific venues, ITNY presents ice dance that helps to open one’s eyes to seeing skating in new and unexpected ways. ITNY was the very first ice dance company to receive dance program funding from the National Endowment for the Arts, the New York State Council on the Arts and the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs. www.icetheatre.org 

ITNY is also supported by the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, in partnership with the City Council, and NYC Council Member Mark Levine and by Dance/NYC'S Coronavirus Dance Relief Fund.
