Mission Statement

Blind and visually impaired students not only deserve to learn physical skills, but are entitled to learn them. They have a right to learn dance and movement skills from a teacher with appropriate training and empathy. They have a right to learn physical forms of artistic expression, so that they can self-actualize.

Program Statement

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.
