Frequently Asked Questions
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Who are these workshops for?
The Family Dance Workshops are created to provide free workshops for families with children 10 and under with and without disabilities to explore and learn about ballet together. Every child must participate with an adult.

Can my child with a disability come to this workshop?
Yes! Children with and without disabilities are welcome. If you have specific questions or comments, please contact our accessibility office at (202) 416-8727 or access@kennedy-center.org.

How will this workshop be different from other workshops?
When you come to this workshop, ushers in red coats will help you find a space and place to enjoy and learn about ballet. Additional adults with name tags will help the teachers show the dance steps. There will be a “take a break” space and visual schedule cues. There will also be pre-visit materials to help you prepare ahead of time.

How can I prepare?

Will there be a break space?
Yes! There will be a "take a break space." We will also have noise cancelling headphones available for children who may need a break from the noises of the workshop. Contact us at (202) 416-8727 or access@kennedy-center.org if you have any questions.

Where in the Kennedy Center is the workshop?
The workshop will be held in front of the Millennium Stage. Find it by following signs to the Grand Foyer. There will be a sign and table to check-in, and ushers will help each child and adult find a special dot that will mark their dancing space for the workshop. For more information to help you prepare for your visit, download our Pre-Visit Story above.

Is there a waitlist once the workshop is full?
There will be a waitlist at the registration table on the morning of the workshop. You will be asked to fill out a liability waiver on site before participating at the check-in table. If you have a child with a disability and want to check to see if there is space available before coming to the Kennedy Center, please call or email Sherisa Oie, our dance education coordinator, at 202-416-8851 or soie@kennedy-center.org.

If I signed up online, am I guaranteed a spot in the workshop?
Yes; however, if you have not arrived and checked in by 10:55 a.m., your spot will be released if there is a waitlist. Please try to check in 15-20 minutes before the workshop’s start at 11 a.m.

Will there be stroller parking?
Yes! We will have an identified space near the check-in table in the Grand Foyer for stroller parking.
