Inspiring, with No Challenges or Limitations, the Universality of Dance Experiences

INCLUDE is adaptive dance instruction for children with special needs such as Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, and related disabilities. Students dance with Mid-Columbia Ballet company dancers every class!

Sensory Friendly Performance of Giselle

Mid-Columbia Ballet will leave on some lights, lower the music, and invite individuals with disabilities/special needs and their families to a sensory-friendly performance of Act II of the one of the most beautiful ballets of all time, Giselle. This relaxed 35-minute performance has been specially created to serve families with children who have related sensory disorders. This performance has no cost for families, but we request that each family register using the link below.
