Workshops available for The Nutcracker, Swan Lake, The Sleeping Beauty, The Wizard of Oz, and Peter Pan.

Ballet 101

Dispelling myths for newcomers and skeptics! These 60-minute workshops for community groups and businesses prove that ballet is so much more than layers of tulle and satin shoes. So step away from the stereotypes and learn why the common misconceptions about ballet are bunk.
