Meet the Dancer
Experience ballet from the other side of the footlights. A NYCB dancer will immerse your group in the life of a Company member during this 45-minute discussion and backstage tour, sharing insights into the life of a dancer and providing background for the performance your group is attending. You’ll hear interesting moments from the history of both NYCB and our home, the David H. Koch Theater, and have the opportunity to experience the breathtaking view of the auditorium from onstage. Participants must be at least 10 years old.
