Sensory Friendly Performances

Colorado Ballet presents two performances a year in a relaxed environment with sensory friendly adaptations to provide an inclusive space for children and adults with sensory processing disorders, autistic audience members, 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 QuixoteThe NutcrackerPeter Pan and more.

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