Nutcracker Dance Workshops Ages 3 to 6 Part II

In Grandma's Attic

Kidz Tips
  • Dance with the Nutcracker story!
  • Costumes and props provided
  • Take home your creation

In these 2-hour workshops students get to dress-up as either Clara or Fritz, dance and act out excerpts of the Nutcracker story.


In the Part II workshops, after learning a pantomime to relay the battle story to the Sugar Plum Fairy, we will learn excerpts from the Land of Sweets, like: Spanish, Chinese, Trepak, Reed Flutes, Bon-Bons, & Sugar Plum Fairy, too! After a water bottle break, we will stage the story ballet ourselves with a toy theater, paper dolls, and stickers. The arts-and-crafts portion of the workshop is an opportunity for the students to create their very own Winter Wonderland Scene (Act I craft), or Gingerbread House Scene (Act II craft) to take home.

Dance class with warm-ups & stretches precede the workshop themes.

In Grandma's Attic is a children's fantasy dance program now celebrating 22 years of dance offerings in NYC! The world of ballet comes alive for dancers age 2–17 with daily, weekend, after-school classes, and summer workshops in this alternative creative ballet program which uses dress-up, make-believe, improvisation and, of course, dance training at all ages and skill levels starting right at preschool. Using both fairytales and original stories, In Grandma’s Attic gives students the look and feel of ballet as a performance art while they explore and reenact stories through dance with the guidance of their teacher.
