Children’s Workshop Series

Each of Springfield Ballet’s workshops engages young participants (age 3–8) in an afternoon of fun and culture which includes a craft, story time, dancing, and games. They are great introductions to the art of ballet and serve well to enrich the lives of young students, both dancers and non-dancers.

Children should wear comfortable attire (stretch/sweat pants and t-shirt or leotard and tights), bare feet or dance shoes. They will make a craft that coordinates with the ballet, and they will be read a synopsis of the ballet. They will also dance some of the male and female roles to the original compositions, play games and meet a character from the ballet! Join us at 4:40 pm, at the end of the workshop, to see your dancer perform what they learned!

Enrollment is limited. Call 417.862.1343 or stop by our offices to sign up!

Boys Workshops

This FREE workshop, taught by a male instructor, will offer movement instruction and conditioning exercises to increase balance, coordination agility and overall strength. It is no secret among professional athletes that a strong connection exists between dance movement and athleticism. From increased flexibility to use of muscles that can't be worked in a weight room, see the results for yourself!
