Fall Family Matinee

Wear your favorite costume and celebrate Halloween with American Ballet Theatre.


On October 26, starting at 1:00pm before the matinee and during intermission, families are invited to wear their favorite costumes and Trick-or-Treat in the David H. Koch Theater.

A variety of activities designed for children to learn about the art of ballet will be stationed in the Promenade of the David H. Koch Theater. Families can meet an ABT dancer, explore different styles of dance shoes at the “Dance Shoe Petting Zoo,” pose for photos on ABT’s red carpet and enter a contest for “Best Ballet-Inspired Costume.”
