This year, IMDA is expanding our Sensory-Friendly Programing on Day of Irish Dance. These presentations are designed for audiences of all ages and abilities, including individuals on the autism spectrum and those with sensory sensitivities. The presentations take place in a relaxed environment where audience members are welcome to be who they are and enjoy the activities together with family and friends:
Early Open - Families may take advantage of coming to Landmark Center early – beginning at 10:00 a.m. The early entrance gives families a chance to make their way to Courtroom 317 before the crowds start to build.
Discounts on tickets are available if guests bring the flyer.
