Dancers in white tutu synchronized dancing on stage. Repetition.
As the world around us and everyone in it move at breakneck speed, we need to take a step back and just breathe. IDA is pleased to take the stage and share a little joy through the artistry of dance, sit back and take a breath, breathe!

What are Relaxed Performances?


Sometimes referred to as sensory-friendly experiences, Relaxed Performances give the opportunity for those with various sensitivities towards sensory stimuli to experience and enjoy live theatre.

These performances will be designed in a way to be more comfortable for audience members who may experience anxiety or are not comfortable with some aspects of a traditional theatre setting. This can include people on the Autism Spectrum and their families; those with sensory and communicative disorders or learning disabilities; people with Tourette’s syndrome; someone who might need to move often due to chronic pain or to use the facilities; or even parents with toddlers.
