New York, NY (January 8, 2016) — Lincoln Center invites families to get out of the cold at its Winter Warm-Up, a day of free events celebrating the arts for families and children on January 23, 2016. The new winter season party on the plaza, free and open to the public and hosted by Lincoln Center’s LC Kids program, will include indoor and outdoor activities, such as three sessions of Lincoln Center’s popular Silent Disco dance party for kids, ice-sculptures around the campus, and a film screening.


Starting at 12:00 p.m., ice-sculptures will be carved around the campus, with the finished sculptures staying on the plaza until 5:00 p.m. Families can vote on their favorite sculptures and will be entered to win four free tickets to an upcoming performance at Lincoln Center. In addition, there will be a free screening of Alvin Ailey Dance Theater’s Chroma, Grace, Takademe, Revelations from the Lincoln Center at the Movies: Great American Dance series on the large screen inside the David Rubenstein Atrium. Screenings are 12:00 p.m and 2:00 p.m. Food and beverages, including the perfect cold-weather treat hot chocolate, will be available for sale at locations around the campus.


Silent Disco, a highlight of each summertime Midsummer Night Swing season and recently expanded to extra sessions around the city, will have its first kid-focused event at Lincoln Center at Winter Warm-Up. There are three one-hour-long sessions (12:00 p.m., 2:30 p.m., and 5:00 p.m.) inside the lobby of Alice Tully Hall, with three DJs spinning varied music options on wireless headphones, with kids choosing the music station. Silent Disco is recommended for ages 3 and up.


Winter Warm-Up events are free and open to the public; outdoor events will be held weather permitting. An LC Kids membership is required to reserve a spot to one of the three Silent Disco sessions. Registration for membership is recommended in advance at Membership to LC Kids is free, with additional membership options starting at $125, which offer pre-sales, and additional opportunities for family-friendly programs at Lincoln Center.
