Black Diamond Ballet values creating accessible theatre experiences for all individuals in our community. We are committed to increasing access and inclusion for those with cognitive or physical disabilities. At our sensory-friendly performance of our 12th Annual Nutcracker ballet, sensory modifications are balanced with preserving an engaging theatre experience for all individuals and their families.

The sensory-friendly Nutcracker performance is designed especially for individuals with autism spectrum disorders, sensory sensitivities, or other disabilities.
