NYC Ballet

Our students explore dance as a form of communication through the integration of writing and movement activities. Classes write their own story and work with a NYCB Teaching Artist to transform their written words to movement. 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 performance of student choreographed work. Participating classes attend a live performance at Lincoln Center.

Ballet will begin in October this year!
