Movement Workshops for Children with Physical Disabilities will return in December. Please check this page for program updates and more information. Virtual Access Workshops will continue to be offered during this time.
Join the artists of New York City Ballet in an exploration of the music, movement, and themes of some of NYCB's most treasured repertory.
These one-hour workshops are especially designed for children with physical disabilities and movement disorders (including Dystonia, Cerebral Palsy, Spina Bifida, and others). Under the guidance of a medical professional, each participating child will be paired with a volunteer medical student “buddy” who will offer assistance with mobility and stability throughout the workshop. No prior dance experience needed. Siblings are encouraged to participate.
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.
Clothing that is comfortable to move in. Ballet shoes are optional.
New York City Ballet Rehearsal Studios
Samuel B. & David Rose Building, 7th Floor
165 West 65th Street between Broadway and Amsterdam
We are thrilled to welcome visitors back to NYCB’s Rehearsal Studios in the Samuel B. & David Rose Building (the “Studios”) for in person events. New York City Ballet remains deeply committed to the health and safety of our visitors, artists, and staff. In compliance with developing guidelines issued by federal, state, and local governments, the Company has put in place preventative measures to try to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
With safety at the forefront, New York City Ballet will be implementing a mandatory vaccination policy for all visitors and employees 12 years of age and over. Visitors 12 and over must be fully vaccinated and will be required to show in person proof of vaccination against COVID-19 upon entering the Rose Building. All visitors, including children under the age of 12 for whom there is currently no available vaccination, must remain masked at all times. If a visitor remains unvaccinated because of a disability or sincerely held religious belief, that person may contact the New York City Ballet in writing for assistance or to request a reasonable accommodation by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Based on CDC and New York State guidelines at the time of your visit, additional entry requirements may include a contact tracing survey, limitations on belongings in the Studio, assigned entry times, contactless temperature check, social distancing, and more. Please check back for updates on our complete and most up-to-date protocol, which is subject to change. For more details, please visit nycballet.com/safety.
