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 4:30 pm, at the end of the workshop, to see your dancer perform what they learned!

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!
