Introductory Residency $1,400 
2 Visits by an ABT Dance Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).
Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to an ABT performance.

Two in-school workshops introduce students to ballet, its history and vocabulary, in preparation for an ABT performance experience. Teaching Artists will focus on movement skills and audience expectations specific to the ballet performance that students will attend, allowing students to make strong connections to what they see on stage.
Common Themes Dance Residency $3,500 
5 visits by an ABT Dance Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).
Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to our Young People's Ballet Workshop performance.

The five workshops develop the seven movements of classical dance around a common theme. Examples of common themes used in past five-day residencies include: Folk Tales, Poetry, Nutrition, Exercise, artwork, or a ballet from ABT's Repertory. For each residency, one common theme will be chosen by the partnering school and will be used to structure and inspire the dance-making process.
Repertory-Based Residency $7,000 
10 visits by an ABT Dance Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).
Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to our Young People's Ballet Workshop performance.

The ten workshops develop student movement skills, allowing them to complete choreographic assignments specific to a chosen ballet performance. These residencies encourage creative problem solving in small group settings and development in dance literacy specific to ABT repertory, as students work to master their own interpretation of the chosen ballet.
Design Residency $4,000 
5 visits by an ABT Design Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).
Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to our Young People's Ballet Workshop performance.

The five workshops develop student design skills, allowing them to complete costume and set design assignments specific to a chosen performance. Design concepts will be linked to the performance students attend, though the designs themselves will be informed by each school's needs. This program is ideal for schools looking to enhance their existing dance program.
Common Themes Dance & Design Residency $7,500 
5 visits by an ABT Dance Teaching Artist + 5 visits by an ABT Design Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).
Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to our Young People's Ballet Workshop performance.

The program offers ten days of in-school workshops -five days in each discipline - led by ABT Teaching Artists. The five dance workshops hone students  movement skills, and their abilities to organize movements into combinations and sequences. Equally valued are students' abilities to choose, design and construct materials into costume and set pieces. These residencies encourage creative problem solving across disciplines, in both individual and small group settings, and a development of dance literacy specific to ABT repertory as students work to master their own interpretation of the chosen ballet.
Repertory and Design Residency $9,500 

10 visits by an ABT Dance Teaching Artist + 5 visits by an ABT Design Teaching Artist for each of 4 classes (up to 128 students).

Complimentary tickets for all students and chaperones to our Young People's Ballet Workshop performance.


The most in-depth residency we offer asks students to create and refine an original work of dance based on ABT Repertory, complete with costuming/scenic elements for a showing in their school. Curricula for each Repertory and Design residency are conceived in concert, allowing the work in one discipline to support and inform the work in the other.  Through these residencies, we strive to create a rich dialogue across disciplines, rife with ideas for critical refinement.
