Abridged and Sensory Shows

Performances with a Heart

In addition to full-length ballet productions, IBC offers abridged performances to meet the needs of our young audience members and those who might not feel comfortable attending a full-length performance where the audience is not always accepting of small disturbances during the show.


We understand that some children might need to leave the theater for a few moments and then return, that they will sometimes express their pleasure or ask a question out-loud during the show. Abridged performances are conducted with these needs in mind.

If you would like your group to attend an abridged performance for either young school children or for groups with special needs, please contact us so that we have a better understanding of your needs, and to discuss how we can best accommodate your group.
