Ballet Essentials Workshop Weekend

Four-Day Ballet Experiences for Adults Ages 21+

Tickets to the 2020 Ballet Essentials Workshop Weekends will go on sale in January. Please check back for more information.

Explore and refine your ballet abilities with one of NYCB’s Ballet Essentials Workshop Weekends. Designed for adults with beginner to advanced beginner ballet experience, each four-day workshop will give you a glimpse of what it’s like to train exclusively with NYCB. You’ll gain insights on technique and learn choreography from your favorite NYCB works.  All workshops will be led by NYCB dancers and artistic staff, and feature accompaniment by company pianists.

Every day will begin with an extensive warm-up or company class designed to prepare you for the dance-filled day ahead.  Participants will then be divided into two groups according to level where they will learn NYCB-inspired choreography specially-tailored to their experience with ballet.  In addition to repertory workshops, participants will observe an exclusive in-studio lecture demonstration featuring NYCB Company members, take a Pilates class designed for ballet dancers, tour NYCB’s theater at Lincoln Center, and have other special behind the scenes experiences. 

Each weekend will culminate with the chance to perform for an invited audience of family and friends. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from the dancers you have admired onstage and bond with your fellow ballet fans. Invigorate your passion for ballet with this one-of-a-kind opportunity.
