Description
Finding a date, getting dressed up, and going dancing can be difficult for any teenager. For many living with autism, the idea of going to a spring formal and navigating social cues they don’t understand is even more intimidating and frightening. Alexandra Shiva’s HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO follows a group of teenagers as they attempt to overcome this fear and prepare mentally, emotionally, and physically for this rite of passage. With a gentle and sensitive eye, Shiva follows the group through counseling and a series of role-play exercises leading up to the dance.
