The Royal Opera House invites its youngest audiences to a specially-curated morning of dance, music and song performances, workshops and activities for families with tiny Dots, aged zero to pre-school.
Following the popularity of Ballet Dots and Opera Dots, we'll open and transform our public spaces for our youngest friends for the first ever Dots Day for babies, crawlers, tots and their families. We invite young explorers to enjoy a day of performances handpicked by Page One Theatre, Holly Noble Dance and cello virtuoso Matthew Sharp. Step into interactive taster workshops including Baby-Wearing Ballet, a class for grown-ups led by Royal Ballet First Artist Tara-Brigitte Bhavnani, as well as our signature Ballet and Opera Dots workshops and much, much more. Dots Day is a chance for mums, dads, grandmas and grandpas to share a special day in the Royal Opera House's open spaces, making memories and sharing the love of ballet and opera, and perhaps discovering something entirely new. In our creative playground you'll hear live music, have fun dressing-up, hear stories and meet curious characters. Join us for an enchanting adventure for the whole family.
Please note: This is a participatory workshop. Each child and adult will need their own ticket for this event.
