Children’s Workshop Series


Registration for Springfield Ballet's Children's Workshop Series for Fall 2020 is now closed.

Registration for the Children's Workshop Series in Winter/Spring 2021 will open Monday, January 4.

 

Each Springfield Ballet workshop engages boys and girls (age 3–8) in an afternoon of fun and dance that includes learning roles from the ballet, crafts, games, a synopsis of the story and a meet and greet with characters from the ballet. No dancer experience is needed to attend this enriching ballet introduction.


Winter/Spring 2021 Workshops:
 

All workshops are held at The Creamery Arts Center. Children are not required to have dance experience to attend - this is open to all!

Participants should wear comfortable attire (stretch/sweat pants and t-shirt or leotard and tights), bare feet or dance shoes. Masks are required to be worn by all participants and faculty members attending each workshop.

Cost is $32 for both workshops or $20 for one workshop.
Registration and payment deadline is the Friday prior to the workshop.

We encourage you to REGISTER EARLY, as workshops do sell out! Call 417.862.1343, stop by the Business Office or click the registration button starting January 4 to register your child/ren.
