Relaxed Performance of Ballet in a Box
Dance | Years 1-13
Following the success of the previous two events, the RNZB, in collaboration with the Vodafone Events Centre, offered a sensory-friendly performance for students and patrons with disabilities.
This event will present a programme of ballet excerpts, complete with costumes and make-up and conclude with the opportunity for the public to see the costumes close-up and ask questions of the dancers as they mingle in the foyer.
It’s aimed at children and adults who would benefit from a more relaxed performance environment, including (but no limited to) those with autistic spectrum conditions, anyone with sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability. This means that there is a more casual-than-usual approach to front-of-house etiquette and there is a more relaxed attitude to noise (voluntary and involuntary) in the auditorium, in order to reduce anxiety and ensure a safe and enjoyable theatre visit.
Dates for the 2021 event are yet to be confirmed - if you would like to be notified when a date is confirmed, fill in the form below.
