How to Dance in Ohio
The Child Mind Institute is partnering with a new musical now on Broadway! See it now before the final performance on February 11, 2024.
There is a saying that goes, “If you’ve met one autistic person, you’ve met one autistic person.” We’re excited that seven autistic actors have made their Broadway debut in leading roles alongside a stellar ensemble in How to Dance in Ohio.
How to Dance in Ohio is based on a true story and the Peabody Award-winning HBO documentary. It’s about seven autistic young adults preparing for a spring formal dance — a rite of passage that breaks open their routines and sets off hilarious and heartbreaking encounters.
This show features all different kinds of families, and we encourage you to bring yours! Accessibility is not just a plotline, but also a part of the production. You can read the perspective statement, find autism resources, and review the Belasco Theatre’s accessibility practices on the show’s website.
