Meet the Dancer
Experience ballet from the other side of the footlights
A NYCB dancer will escort your group, providing insights into the life of a dancer and answering questions about the performance your group is attending. He or she will also share interesting moments from the history of both NYCB and our home, the David H. Koch Theater. You'll also have an opportunity for a breathtaking view of the auditorium from the stage.
Meet the Musician
See the music and hear the dance from a musician’s perspective
NYCB is fortunate to feature live music performed by the Company’s own 62 piece Orchestra. In a pre-performance discussion, your group will enjoy the splendor of the Theater as an Orchestra member leads a conversation on the music’s integral contribution to the beauty of a ballet performance.
Dress Makes the Dance
Behind-the-scenes glimpse into NYCB’s costume shop
NYCB's Costume Shop Supervisor will guide you on a tour of various locations where costumes are stored and readied for use in performances, while gaining insights on costume design, creation, and maintenance.
Private class with a NYCB dancer
In this once-in-a-lifetime experience, young dance students (ages 13 and older with prior ballet experience) have the opportunity to take a thrilling, private, hour-long class taught by a NYCB dancer. There’s no better way to learn ballet than from the professionals themselves! A few non-participating group members may observe at no additional cost.
Personalized class and coaching session with a NYCB dancer
Performance groups — from dance studios to show choirs — are invited inside the rehearsal studios to work on movement aspects of their performance. A NYCB Company member will lead attendees through an introductory ballet warmup before observing the group’s routine and providing direction on how to enhance their performance utilizing ballet technique. Non-participating group members may observe for a minimal fee.
