Relaxed Performance of Ballet in a Box | Years 1-13
Dance | Years 1-13
Following the success of the previous two events, the RNZB, in collaboration with the Vodafone Events Centre, is again proud to offer a sensory-friendly performance for students and patrons with disabilities in 2019.
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.
The Relaxed Performance of Ballet in a Box was held on April 9, 2019. If you are interested in booking this experience for your students in 2020, please request to be added to the mailing list and you will be notified when bookings have been opened for next year.
