Workshops for Children with Autism

Join the artists of New York City Ballet in this one-hour movement workshop especially designed for children with autism and developmental disabilities. Children will learn a ballet-based warm-up and movement combinations inspired by some of NYCB’s most treasured repertory, and give a lively performance for accompanying family and friends to conclude the event. Workshops feature live piano accompaniment. No prior dance experience needed. A visual story will be sent prior to the event and a designated quiet space will be available. Siblings are encouraged to participate.

Clothing that is comfortable to move in. Ballet shoes are optional.

This workshop is free of charge but reservations are required. Space is limited and registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once registered, you will be asked to complete a brief questionnaire providing more information on how we can best meet the needs of your child.
