From the Page to the Stage Sensory Friendly Performance

Colorado Ballet presents two Sensory Friendly Performances a year to provide an accepting space for children and adults with sensory processing disorders, autism, and other disabilities. With adaptions listed below, we are dedicated to providing an accessible space for everyone to watch and experience the magic of ballet. Colorado Ballet Studio Company professional dancers perform excerpts from ballets based on folk tales and literary classics while moving through the timeline of ballet. The audience will watch as stories and history come to life through the world of ballet! Shows will feature brief excerpts from productions such as Don Quixote, The Nutcracker, Peter Pan and more.

Performances take place in Colorado Ballet's Black Box Theater at the Armstrong Center for Dance

Email Education Accessibility Coordinator, Bridget Heddens at bridget.heddens@coloradoballet.org with any questions.

These performances are done in partnership with Developmental Pathways and the Autism Society
