We are happy to announce that the New York City Ballet (NYCB) will conduct a free dance a workshop for children with disabilities on Saturday, July 17, from 10-11 a.m. at the National Museum of Dance. The workshop last year was held virtually due to COVID, but this year we are again holding the workshop in person!
This one-hour workshop will be co-led by a pair of NYCB Dancers and will include a warm-up and choreography inspired by NYCB’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Modifications and movement options will be offered throughout, and movers of all abilities and their siblings are welcome. Unlike in the past when we’ve had medical/PT/OT “buddies” pair up with our young dancers, for this workshop we will be encouraging a parent/guardian of the participant to join the workshop in offering support for their child. Click here for more information and to register.
In addition, the Saratoga Performing Arts Center (SPAC) will again offer a limited number of complimentary tickets to either the matinee or evening performance on Saturday. Up to 4 complimentary tickets will be available to each participant. Information to request these tickets is in the “checkout” section of the registration.
Please share this information with individuals and families that may be interested in attending.
The Workshop and Ballet tickets are FREE, so we hope to see many of you on the 17th!
