Attending live dance performances can be habit-forming, so we recommend starting young by inviting children to the adult table. That's why The Joyce created this series -- family-oriented performances followed by a special opportunity to meet the artists.
Tickets are $10 for kids, and if they see at least two of the three family matinees, they automatically become Joyce Junior Members and save 40% on the price of their tickets -- $10 reduced to $6. Kids (ages 6-14) must be accompanied by an adult.

Rules @ Play is a lively, interactive show created specifically for a young audience exploring how rules present opportunities to solve problems and overcome challenges. They spark creativity and, in the case of Pilobolus, provide tools to make dances. In this fun, engaging and accessible show, Pilobolus dancers perform and analyze Walklyndon, Pseudopodia, The Transformation, and All is Not Lost, four of the company's favorite works, through movement and discussion that showcases the benefits of playing by the rules.
