Pre-Performance Workshops

Summer Season
Pre-Performance Workshops

Join us prior to select performances for an hour of fun, hands-on activities. Bring your children ages 4 through 14 for an exciting and informative introduction to the works they will see on the Met stage.

Children, divided by age, are invited to participate in activities directed by ABT Teaching Artists. The children are guided through a ballet warm-up and taught a short piece of choreography based on the performance they will attend immediately afterward. 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.

Due to health and safety protocols, all Pre-Performance Workshops have been postponed.  We look forward to bringing Pre-Performance Workshops back to the Metropolitan Opera House in 2023.
