Houston Ballet provides audio description services for visually impaired patrons in partnership with team members from Sight into Sound (SIS), a Houston non-profit organization serving the blind and visually-impaired community. Patrons should request narrative services by calling the box office at 713.227.ARTS (2787)  in order to arrange for a narrator at least two weeks prior to their performance in order for a narrator to be available to attend at the chosen performance date and time.

In preparation for the performance, team members of SIS attend a performance and read the program in order to use  succinct, vivid, and imaginative language to describe the visual images and movement. SIS team members describe set design in detail, the dancer's physical appearances, costumes, movements. Patrons wear headsets provided to them to listen to the describer as the production takes place. This service is provided free of charge by Houston Ballet.
