Dedicated to Improving the Lives of Blind and Visually Impaired People

Virtual “Dark Room Ballet” Introductory Classes Starting January 21, 2023

Are you, or someone you know, interested in ballet but have no prior experience? For eight Saturdays, beginning January 23, 2023, from 4 – 5:30 pm, Dark Room Ballet offers its Introductory Level Class virtually via the Zoom platform and free of charge. Dark Room Ballet, hosted by Movement Research, is geared specifically to the educational needs of people who are blind or visually impaired. The classes introduce students to basic ballet vocabulary in preparation for participation in their “Open Level Dark Room Ballet Class.” It covers “anatomical concepts” like torso stability, sightless balancing, and “the use of a taped floor for orientation.” The instructor is Krishna Washburn, a blind ballet dancer and teacher. To check out the class, which is also available via phone call in, or to register, go to Dark Room Ballet Introductory Classes for Blind and Visually Impaired Adults — New Cycle Begins Saturday, January 21st.
