Cincinnati Ballet just announced that in their upcoming season, eight out of 15 choreographers whose work will be performed are women, five of whom are presenting world premieres.
The sensory-friendly performance will be performed at 5pm, designed to create a welcoming and inviting experience for patrons and children with sensory sensitivities or specific needs. These adjustments include gentle lighting and sound, on-hand specialists, and a flexible, open-door theater environment, complete with designated break spaces.
