ABTKids Workshop Series
Saturday Matinee Pre-Performance Workshops

Share the wonder of dance with your entire family as American Ballet Theatre presents its ABTKids Workshop series, a series of exciting and informative children’s workshops to selected ABT performances at the Metropolitan Opera House.

Each workshop highlights a particular Saturday morning or matinee performance and prepares children ages 16 and below to fully engage in the magic that happens on the stage of the Met. Divided into groups according to age, children participate in activities directed by ABT Teaching Artists. Children are guided through a ballet warm-up and taught a short piece of choreography based on that day’s scheduled 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. While all participants should be comfortably dressed and prepared to move, many will enjoy dancing in their favorite dance wear or costumes.


Workshop tickets are priced at $20 for each child and $20 for each adult.
