Description
A first kiss and a first dance are the rites of passage for kids from all walks of life. These first steps toward intimacy are at once exciting and terrifying, but for some teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum, the transition can be nothing less than paralyzing. In Columbus, Ohio, a group of young people with an array of developmental challenges prepares for an iconic event—a spring formal dance. Entertaining, funny and heartbreaking, How to Dance in Ohio challenges us to question and celebrate the path to human connection and to rethink the definition of normal.
