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.
For 2022 Fall performances at the David H Koch Theater, all ticket holders must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. 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.
Every audience member 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):
- Pfizer / BioNtech Comirnaty
- Johnson & Johnson / Janssen
Audiences will be required to maintain appropriate face coverings in accordance with current CDC guidelines when attending performances.
Vaccines are now available for children ages 5 to 11, and fully vaccinated children are welcome to attend performances beginning two weeks after receiving their final dose. Photo ID for children under 12 will not be required as long as they are accompanied by a parent or guardian with valid photo ID.
Negative Covid tests for audience members, including children, will not be accepted as an alternative to vaccination proof.
Specific health and safety protocols are determined by American Ballet Theater in coordination with the David H Koch Theater. These protocols are subject to change. We will strive to communicate substantial changes to health and safety protocols in advance of performances.
The David H Koch Theater may, in its sole discretion, refuse to allow admission to any ticket holder who does not comply with the Theater’s policies.
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.
