In Grandma's Attic

In Grandma’s Attic offers alternative, fantasy-based dance programs for children ages 2-17. Classes combine dance training with dress-up, make-believe, and improvisation to bring fairytales and original tales to life through ballet. Locations in NYC include UWS, Washington Heights, Chelsea, Midtown, and Morningside Heights.

In creative ballet classes for all ages and skill levels starting in preschool, students explore and reenact stories through dance with the guidance of their teacher. Classes are gently taught and, through play and the creative process, aim to inspire creativity and release the imagination.

Offerings include Budding Ballerina & Ballerino, Fairies & Fantasy, Odyssey of the Ballet Fairies, Classical Young Dancer, and an all-boys program for ages 5-12 called Classical Heroes of the Ballet. Adult classes, children's workshops (Nutcracker in December), and birthday parties are also offered.

In Grandma’s Attic is celebrating 23 years of dance in NYC!
