During its 2022-23 season, Grand Rapids Ballet is proud to re-introduce Family Matinee performances, offering an introduction to the art of ballet for families and children. The programs will be led by Artistic Director James Sofranko and will include a demonstration of ballet, including plenty of opportunities for audience interaction, a performance from the professional company, and a chance to meet the dancers.
In an effort to accommodate sensory-sensitive audience members, the Family Matinee performances will feature low-sensory adjustments, including lowered volume, elimination of strobe lighting, and a 45-60 minute runtime. In partnership with the Grand Rapids Children’s Museum, sensory resource backpacks will be available upon request, along with sensory activities in the lobby.
Tickets are FREE for these curated performances! Join us at Elemental Movement on Saturday, October 15, 2022, at 2 p.m. for our first Family Matinee performance of the season. We ask that you please reserve your Elemental Movement tickets ahead of the performance. Digital tickets will be sent to the email provided within 24 business hours. Ballet + Broadway tickets are also available for purchase, taking place Saturday, April 22, 2023, at 2 p.m.
