Covid-19 Safety Policy and Procedures
American Ballet Theatre prioritizes the health and safety of our audiences, dancers, and staff.
For all in-person performance, ABT works closely to follow the health and safety protocols of our presenting venues based on CDC and local guidelines.
2021 Fall performances at the David H. Koch Theater will be seated with no social distancing. Performances will have no intermission or shortened intermissions to maximize audience safety. Additional safety measures include an upgraded auditorium ventilation system, rigorous cleaning and sanitation protocols, and a contactless entrance experience for ticket holders.
For 2021 Fall performances at the David H. Koch Theater, all ticket holders must be fully vaccinated. You are considered fully vaccinated two weeks after you have received a second dose in a two-dose vaccine or two weeks after you have received a single-dose vaccine. All audience members must provide in-person proof of vaccination against Covid-19 with a vaccine approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or by the World Health Organization (WHO).
Audiences will be required to maintain appropriate face coverings in accordance with current CDC guidelines when attending performances.
Children under the age of 12, for whom there is no currently available vaccine, are not permitted to attend 2021 Fall performances regardless of the vaccination status of their guardian. As soon as children under the age of 12 become eligible to receive a vaccine, fully vaccinated children will be welcomed.
Specific health and safety protocols are determined by the David H. Koch Theater and American Ballet Theatre and are subject to change. We will strive to communicate substantial changes to health and safety protocols in advance of performances.
In addition, ABT has revised its ticket exchange and refund policy for the 2021 Fall Season to provide more flexibility.
Thank you for your understanding as we endeavor to keep our audiences and artists safe. Please check back for updates on our most current protocol, which is subject to change.
