I checked the site and this is what it said about the workshop:

“The ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshop is sold out. Please consider participating in the June 2 children’s workshop preceding the full-length matinee of The Bright Steam or the June 23, children’s workshop before The Dream/Firebird. Waitlist also available.”

ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshop
Saturday, May 19, 2012 9:30am, Metropolitan Opera House

Join us prior to ABTKids for an hour of fun, hands-on activities at the ABTKids Pre-Performance Workshops. Bring your children ages 4 through 12 for an exciting and informative introduction to the works they will see on the Met stage. Children, divided by age, are invited to participate in activities directed by ABT Teaching Artists. As an introduction to the movement of ballet, the children are guided through a ballet warm-up and taught a short piece of choreography based on a work they will see during the ABTKids performance. In past workshops, children tried their hand at the basics of stage dueling from Romeo and Juliet and bounded through the Fan Dance from Don Quixote. There is no need for any prior dance background, as we welcome all to experience the joy of dancing. Children are encouraged to wear their favorite dance clothes.Workshop Tickets
Tickets for the workshop are priced at $20 for each child and $20 for each adult, and are available for immediate online purchase. Accompanying tickets to the ABTKids performance can be purchased at any time before the event.
