Appropriate for all ages
These 90-minute panel discussions will reveal how dancers, composers, and choreographers prepare for performances, from their years of training, through hours of rehearsals and finally, performances on the stage. Other collaborative artists may also speak about their designs for lighting, costumes, and scenery. Seminars are a unique opportunity to hear about the creative process and daily experiences of the artists of New York City Ballet.
