Invite students to learn about inspiration as a vehicle for creating art as they experience and investigate New York City Ballet’s dynamic choreography. By examining works by Founding Choreographers George Balanchine and Jerome Robbins, and Resident Choreographer Justin Peck, students are challenged to think critically, act creatively, and work collaboratively as they come together to choreograph their own group dances.
NYCB Teaching Artists lead ten movement-based workshops that focus on the creative process, culminating in a presentation of student-generated choreography. Students also view a live streamed interactive lecture demonstration and attend a live NYCB performance at Lincoln Center.
BRING New York City BALLET TO YOUR SCHOOL
I love that the students get to work together, creatively, and with their bodies in such a deliberate way. There are few other opportunities in the school year for them to do that. Plus, it exposes them to an art form that many wouldn't get the chance to explore.5th Grade Teacher, Manhattan
