About

Dance Visions NY, Inc., is Long Island’s celebrated dance company that presents the authentic Isadora Duncan repertory as well as contemporary works that often use Duncan principles to inform the movement approach. Dance Visions NY brings Duncan’s artistic legacy into the present through the performance of authentic Duncan works as passed on to Beth Jucovy through her 2nd generation Duncan mentors, as well as through presentation of original works, influenced by the Duncan aesthetic, that take on a different form in the modern world.

Dance Visions NY, a 501c3 not-for-profit organization since 2011, was originally founded by Beth Jucovy in 1990 as Dance Visions. They have presented programs extensively throughout the metropolitan area. The company repertory focuses on works that express and explore our shared humanity — timeless themes as illustrated through the Duncan repertory as well as experience of our current times. We bring pure dance works, dance/theater works and narrated, educational programs to local and wider audiences. Often works are site-specific or tailored for particular venues or audiences. We also offer workshops relating to our programs. The contemporary choreographers include Beth Jucovy, and at times, other company dancer/choreographers.

We are honored to have received over a dozen NYSCA Decentralization and North Shore Community Arts Council Grants. Thank you to NYSCA, Huntington Arts, Long Island Arts Council at Freeport and The North Shore Community Arts Council. Thank you to those individual and businesses who have also supported us in our mission!
