Shall We Dance?
The Cabot has two different seating plans and two different policies related to dancing.
At SEATED CONCERTS all seats are reserved and dancing is not allowed in any aisles or in any area where it obstructs the view of seated patrons. If you hope to be able to dance at a seated concert, we recommend you purchase seats in the last few rows of section(s) ORCHESTRA LEFT or ORCHESTRA RIGHT, in the second row of tables on the Orchestra Platform (Tables D-F) or in the back of the balcony. Please feel free to call or come into the Cabot during box office hours. We can help you select seats where you won’t bother other patrons if you wish to dance.
For shows designated as DANCE SHOWS, The Cabot has created a new standing/dancing area called the Viewing Platform and we are allowing dancing in your seats throughout the venue.
The Viewing Platform is a raised platform at the back of the center section of the orchestra. This area is a non-ticketed standing/dancing zone that can be used by all ticket holders as space allows for dancing. Access is first-come, first-served. Taking turns is encouraged. If a show is set up this way the event will be listed as a DANCE SHOW on the ticketing page and the Viewing Platform will be visible on the seating map. You cannot purchase a ticket for the Viewing Platform. It’s a shared area.
There is no dancing in the theater aisles or in the back aisle at any performances as these areas must be kept clear by security due to fire safety regulations.
Please feel free to call the theater during box office hours with any questions.
