ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshop

ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshop

Metropolitan Opera House Rehearsal Studios

Saturday, May 18th, 2019 at 9:15am

Join us prior to ABTKids for an hour of fun, hands-on activities at the ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshop. Bring your children ages 4 through 12 for an exciting and informative introduction to the works they will see on The Met stage.  As an introduction to the movement of ballet, ABT teaching artists divide children into groups according to age, guide them through a ballet warm-up and teach a short piece of choreography based on a ballet excerpt to be seen onstage during the ABTKids performance. In past workshops, children tried their hand at the basics of stage dueling from Romeo and Juliet and bounded through the Fan Dance from Don Quixote. There is no need for any prior dance background, as we welcome all to experience the joy of dancing. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite dance clothes.  

Each order must include at least one adult ticket purchase. Also, each child will receive a personalized packet at the start of the workshop. Names will appear on the packet as they are typed in the spaces below. 

The waitlist will close on Friday, May 17th at 3:30pm.
