About Dark Room Ballet

Dark Room Ballet is Krishna’s specialized introductory dance curriculum for blind and visually impaired dancers. It is a toolbox course that teaches specific skills, including finding balance without sight, maintaining orientation with auditory and foot sensitivity, and self-correction with internal alignment. Dark Room Ballet is based in both Royal Academy of Dance ballet training and Butoh and classical Japanese dance training. Krishna holds a Master’s of Education from Hunter College and special certification through the American College of Sports Medicine, and has been a movement teacher for blind and visually impaired people of all ages for many years. Dark Room Ballet students can expect to learn transferable dance vocabulary and technique, as well as performance skills and musicality.
