Children’s Ballet Workshops
Ballet Workshops run two or more hours each and combine the best In Grandma's Attic has to offer with even more storydancing along with theme-related arts and crafts, yoga, rehearsing with a ballerina, making up a solo or learning a group dance. Workshops are titled, Favorite Fairytales, Dance-A-Ballet, Make-A-Solo, Choreography Circle, and It’s All About Rehearsal! They are held periodically throughout the year and whenever school is closed, through the holidays including most school breaks, and throughout the Summer session.
If you are interested in a workshop, please contact us by email at email@example.com, or by calling (212) 726-2362.

**_In these 2-hour workshops_ **students get to dress-up as either Clara or Fritz, dance and act out excerpts of the Nutcracker story.
For Part I workshops we will dance with hobby horses and learn a lively polka dance in the Party Scene, act out the battle of the mice and soldiers, and then journey to the Land of Snow where we dance as the falling snowflakes.
In the Part II workshops, after learning a pantomime to relay the battle story to the Sugar Plum Fairy, we will learn excerpts from the Land of Sweets, like: Spanish, Chinese, Trepak, Reed Flutes, Bon-Bons, & Sugar Plum Fairy, too! After a water bottle break, we will stage the story ballet ourselves with a toy theater, paper dolls, and stickers. The arts-and-crafts portion of the workshop is an opportunity for the students to create their very own Winter Wonderland Scene (Act I craft), or Gingerbread House Scene (Act II craft) to take home.
Dance class with warm-ups & stretches precede the workshop themes.
