Autism-Friendly Access Workshops

For children ages 4-12 with autism and other sensory needs

Tickets for the 2024-25 Season will go on sale Monday, August 5. Please check back here for more information.

Join the artists of New York City Ballet in these movement workshops designed especially for children with autism and their families.

During these one-hour events, children will be guided in a ballet-based warm-up and choreography inspired by a featured ballet being performed this season. Workshops feature live piano accompaniment and a designated quiet space will be available. A visual story will be sent prior to the event to give your child advance notice of what will be happening during the workshop.

No prior dance experience is necessary and siblings are encouraged to participate.


Dancer instructors for each Access Workshop will be announced here the week before each workshop takes place. Instructors are subject to change.


$8 per participating child. Please note that accompanying family members/caretakers do not need a ticket to attend. 

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.


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