Join our mailing list and select the A Chance to Dance/Sensory Friendly Initiative group when signing up for information about upcoming performances and other opportunities.
North Pointe Ballet is committed to bringing classical ballet to all types of families in Northeast Ohio and most especially those in the extrasensory community by giving them an opportunity to engage in live arts experiences in their own communities at our sensory-friendly performances.
NPB’s sensory-friendly performances include accommodations designed to meet the unique needs of families with individuals who have extrasensory needs. These accommodations include:
- house lights remaining on during the performance
- reduction of loud jarring sounds and strobe lighting
- accommodated house rules that allow audience members to talk and move about during the performance
- a designated Take A Break Space where sensory needs can be fulfilled while others can still enjoy the performance
One performance of every story ballet run is a dedicated sensory-friendly presentation.
Come join North Pointe Ballet for a performance! The social story below is designed to give our sensory-friendly audience members an overview of what it will be like to attend a performance at the theater where we perform. We hope you’ll find this helpful in preparing for your visit to the ballet!
