Sensory Friendly Performances
Keshet strives to make dance performance at Keshet Center for the Arts accessible to all. With this goal, performances have altered technical elements, smaller audience sizes, and break-out spaces for individuals to get up and move around throughout the performance, providing a welcoming setting for families.
Sensory adjustments include:
- House lights remain at half brightness during the entire performance.
- Fewer tickets are sold to allow you to spread out in seating.
- Entry and Exit to the theater is not restricted. You may come and go as you please.
- Volunteers are stationed throughout the audience, lobby and outside the Keshet Center for the Arts to assist audience members.
- Quiet areas are designated in the lobby.
- Keshet dancers, staff, ushers and volunteers are receiving training to ensure an exemplary experience for you and your family.
