Dance the Story at Home!

During this time when many families are at home, we are excited to provide ballet engagement opportunities for children and their caregivers! Come “Dance the Story” with PBT!

Explore movement and dance using a beloved children’s story! Join us for “Dance the Story,” an up-on-your-feet story time that introduces kids to basic ballet steps and movement concepts. Caregivers are welcome to dance along with us and learn to bring books to life with movement. We’ll be dancing and moving every Tuesday and Thursday at 10 a.m.!
