How to Dance in Ohio is a new Broadway musical based on a true story.
Based on the award-winning HBO documentary, How to Dance in Ohio is a heart-filled new musical exploring the need to connect and the courage it takes to step out into the world. At a group counseling center in Columbus, Ohio, seven autistic young adults prepare for a spring formal dance–a rite of passage that breaks open their routines and sets off hilarious and heartbreaking encounters with love, stress, excitement, and independence. How to Dance in Ohio is a story about people standing on the cusp of the next phase of their lives, facing their hopes and fears, ready to make a very big first move…and dance.
Theatrical smoke/haze is used in this production.
Will there be Sensory-Friendly performances?
The How to Dance in Ohio experience has been carefully developed by the production and creative team to be inherently sensory-friendly, (sensory-friendly refers to building a welcoming environment designed to accommodate individuals with sensory sensitivities). Ensuring accessibility support for audiences is of utmost importance, and the How to Dance in Ohio team is diligently working on incorporating various features. For example, they are working to provide advance information about the theater experience, developing sensory tool kits, cool-down spaces, and a performance sensitivity list, all so that audience members know what to expect when they arrive.
