Since 1919, The New School has been home to scholars, creators, and activists who challenge convention and boldly make their mark on the world.
To celebrate this groundbreaking legacy, we are opening our doors to the public for a weeklong festival of innovative performances, talks, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, and more.

On October 1–6, 2019, join us as we reflect on a century of world-changing ideas and together imagine a new kind of future.

The Festival of New is free and open to all.

Part performance, part therapy, part dance party; Haus of Sweat workshops guide participants on a theatrical (and sweaty) ride to embodied empowerment. Our mission is to shed emotional weight by Moving As One.

Haus of Sweat combines iconic and timeless pop music, vintage fashion, and the art of aerobic dancing to sweat out the demons and dance into radical self love. Participants will learn how to body roll, booty pop, serve the curve, and dominate the dance floor! Workshops integrate dance techniques, performance persona development, club culture, and embodiment practices into a cathartic experience where sweat becomes our collective source of power.

All levels, all bodies welcome. Dress to express, wear sneakers and bring H2O.

Keep updated and inspired @hausofsweat
