Budding ballet dancers can experience the thrill of dancing on stage at the Peacock Theatre in our series of creative ballet workshops inspired by My First Ballet: Swan Lake. Led by English National Ballet’s highly experienced Associate Dance Artists, these workshops created especially for children will explore the wonderful music, iconic swan-inspired movement, and famous characters of My First Ballet: Swan Lake. Participants will also have the chance to get up close to the beautiful costumes and production scenery!
The workshops are recommended for children aged 4 – 7 and an adult participant must accompany the young dancers. One adult may attend with a maximum of two children, but we recommend one adult per child for optimum enjoyment and participation. All participants, adults and children, must purchase a ticket.

** What is a Relaxed Performance?
A Relaxed Performance is a less formal theatre experience for anyone who would benefit from a more relaxed atmosphere to enjoy a show. They support noise and movement within the auditorium during a show, re-entry when needed so house lights are left on throughout, and a separate chill-out space for anyone who might need it at any time during their visit. We also provide a Visual Story so people can familiarise themselves with the theatre and key details about the show in advance.
