Click the activities below for full instructions.

For Young Elementary Students:

Five Ballet Positions


Debbie Allen is a famous American dancer, actor and choreographer. Her book Dancing in the Wings tells the story of a young girl named Sassy who is energetic, loud and feels like she doesn’t quite fit in--especially in her ballet class. All of that changes when Sassy has a chance to audition for a special ballet teacher. Learn the first five positions of ballet steps to become a dancer just like Sassy!

For Middle School/High School Students:

Swing Out!


Get into the swing of the new year by learning some basic swing steps! Swing Dance was born in African American communities during the Harlem Renaissance. Explore the story of Frankie Manning, the man considered the ambassador of Lindy Hop. Frankie Manning was responsible for bringing Swing Dance back to NYC and will be sure to have you up on your feet!
