Queens Theatre


All Ages


Description: How do ballerinas dance on their toes? How do dancers spin in place without getting dizzy? How many years of training does it take to become a ballet dancer? Those questions and more will be answered when the world-famous School of American Ballet (official academy of New York City Ballet) returns to Queens Theatre for its second year to introduce children to the beauty of ballet. A member of the school's faculty and advanced male and female students will illustrate how talented youngsters develop into accomplished classical ballet dancers, alternating examples of advanced classroom training exercises with the performance of excerpts from notable classical ballets such as The Nutcracker and The Sleeping Beauty. Admission is free, but registration is required.
