New York City Center relies on the support of individuals, foundations, and corporations to present world-class dance, music and theater to more than 300,000 visitors each year. City Center was Manhattan’s first performing arts center, dedicated by Mayor Fiorello LaGuardia in 1943 as “The People’s Theater.” Your support will help us continue LaGuardia’s vision by offering accessible ticket prices, nurturing artists, and sustaining flagship programs such as Fall for Dance, Encores!, and Encores! Off-Center.

There are many ways to support City Center, and we are grateful to our supporters whose commitment is vital to the success of our programs.
