Ballet Breaks has concluded for the spring. Please look for program updates on the homepage this fall.
Experience New York City Ballet from your home with these lively Saturday morning movement workshops, powered by Zoom.
For Children Ages 3-8; no prior dance training needed.
Get your family moving alongside the artists of NYCB with Ballet Breaks. Each 30-minute workshop will be taught by a different NYCB dancer who will lead your little ones through a warm-up and choreography inspired by a beloved ballet from our repertory. Stretch, twirl, and leap with us as we explore basic ballet concepts and learn a new dance together each week.
Dancer instructors for each Ballet Breaks will be announced here the week before each workshop takes place. Instructors are subject to change.
