UIS Performing Arts Center is pleased to announce the addition of sensory-friendly events to the performance schedule. These performances are 60 minutes in length and will be held in the UIS Studio Theatre.

Musician Chris Vallillo and Springfield’s own Copper Coin Ballet Company have crafted performances that highlight their art forms while reducing the challenges to the senses that traditional events sometimes pose. We hope these events will increase arts access for sensory-challenged individuals and their families in our community. All are welcome!
