Children 4-12 years old, divided by age, will participate in activities directed by ABT Teaching Artists. As an introduction to the movement of ballet, the children are guided through a ballet warm-up and taught a short piece of choreography based on ballets that ABT regularly performs at Lincoln Center. Children will transform into the elegant swans of Swan Lake, soar as a swashbuckling pirate from Le Corsaire and bound through the energetic dances of 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.
