The Ice Theater has been performing in New York for more than 30 years, and regularly performs at both Bryant Park and the famed Rockefeller Center rink. Ice Theatre of New York also hosts figure skating classes at the Chelsea Piers ice rink.

Public skating at Bryant Park runs from 8 a.m. through 11:30 p.m. each night. If you're not quite ready to brave the ice yourself, consider curling, bumper cars on ice, or a drink in one of Bryant Park's cozy igloos.
