“Director Diana Byer’s informative lecture demonstration educates children and adult audiences alike on aspects of ballet. New York Theatre Ballet continues to be a cultural treasure for the New York City arts community and audiences.” -Broadway World
“For all their childlike wonder, most story ballets don’t cater to the average kids’ attention span. With it’s long-running Once Upon A Ballet series, New York Theatre Ballet consolidates the classics into hour long productions for the under-10 crowd and puts parents’ minds at ease.” -The New York Times
Over the last 30 years, NYTB’s Once Upon A Ballet series has introduced thousands of youngsters in New York City and around the country to the world of ballet and dance, fostering their knowledge and appreciation of the performing arts and building audiences of the future.
