Access Workshops for Teens and Adults

Thursdays at 6 PM EST

Join the artists of New York City Ballet for a series of movement workshops designed especially for teens and adults with disabilities, powered by Zoom.

Explore the music, movement, and themes of George Balanchine’s The Nutcracker® in these lively one-hour movement workshops. Each workshop will be led by a NYCB dancer and will include a warm-up and choreography inspired by this treasured holiday classic.

Modifications and movement options will be offered throughout, and movers of all abilities are welcome.

Instructor Schedule

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

DEC 3 – Principal Dancer Adrian Danchig-Waring

The dancer will provide standing and seated versions of exercises throughout the workshop, and will move at a pace conducive for all learners. While movement options will be provided, we encourage you to move at your own pace and perform movement choices based on your own specific needs, as you know your body best!

That is entirely up to you! You will have the ability to enable your camera during the workshop but if you would prefer to be off-camera, you are more than welcome to do so.

Yes, absolutely. A NYCB host will be available to answer any questions while the workshop is in session and the dancer is teaching.
