SMDXB The National Ballet Studio dubai 120516Ballet Performance for Children with Special Needs

This year The National Ballet School is holding a performance specifically for children with special needs and their families! We love that they are opening the art of dance to as many people as possible, by creating an environment where children with different needs feel safe (the house lights are dimmed, and the music is a little quieter). Families are, of course, free to make noise, and move around as they need!

When: Friday, 13 May, from 2pm
Where: Madinat Theatre, Jumeirah Beach Road, Dubai, UAE
How much: Free!
