This New York Ballet Theatre series of hour-long performances is designed with ADHD kids in mind. Which doesn't mean the pieces are dumbed down or spazzed out. Instead, each abridged ballet serves just enough sophistication to acclimate your child to the world of high art. Swag helps! Each child receives a thematic goody bag with crayons, bookmarks, or perhaps a dance-step primer. The company has five productions in rotation with any four of the following five presented every year: Mother Goose!, Carnival of the Animals / Firebird, Cinderella, The Nutcracker, and The Alice-in-Wonderland Follies.
