What makes it "sensory-friendly"?
A friendly, supportive environment for families with a loved one with special needs. Adaptations to the performance are slight, including:
lower sound levels
elimination of potentially startling special effects and lighting
house lights on at about 20%
you are free to get up, move around, and leave whenever you need to
a reduced length of performance
allowed use of iPads and other electronics for therapeutic uses
volunteers scattered throughout the theater to assist and direct audience members as needed
quiet areas for taking a break
fidget objects and earplugs available
Story boards, visits before or after public hours, meet-a-seat program are available upon request.
Please call or email us ahead of time to schedule these options.
If a show is canceled due to inclement weather a credit will be given to future shows.
"Studies have shown that theatre experiences increase social skills for students with autism. Our sensory-friendly performance allows everyone
to experience ballet in a comfortable, nurturing, and accepting environment!"
