Program Components
  • Eight movement-based workshops
  • Classroom teacher professional development session
  • NYCB student matinee performance



$500 per class*

Encourage your students to explore dance as a form of communication through the integration of writing and movement activities. Participating classes write their own story and work with a NYCB Teaching Artist to transform their written words to movement over the course of eight workshops.

Students focus on the importance of elements such as character, setting, and plot in both writing and dance. Ballet Tales contributes to a greater understanding of how storytelling through dance can transcend the components of text, movement, and music, and culminates in a sharing of student-choreographed work. Participating classes attend a live NYCB performance at Lincoln Center.

Our NYCB Teaching Artist created a positive atmosphere where everyone felt that their ideas were valued. As a result, all students took the time to listen to one another.
