An opportunity for children and adults with autism spectrum disorders, and other sensitivity issues or special needs, to experience the world of ballet in a sensory-friendly environment. At these performances there is a more casual approach to front of house etiquette and a more relaxed attitude to noise (voluntary and involuntary) in the auditorium. The aim is to minimize patrons’ anxiety and to ensure they have a safe and enjoyable theatre visit.
At the end of the performance there is an opportunity to talk to the dancers and see the costumes close up.
A social story is prepared for each performance, containing descriptions of what to expect at the performance. This social story is a great way to ensure patrons get the maximum enjoyment from the experience. Download the social story here.
