In honor of Autism Awareness Month, Nitehawk is excited to present a screening to shine light on the fact that 1 in 68 American children are affected by autism. Our program highlights the resources needed to support healthy and fruitful lives for young adults living with autism. Please join us to screen the 2015 Peabody award-winning film, How to Dance in Ohio.
How to Dance in Ohio is the story of a group of teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum preparing for an iconic American rite of passage– a Spring Formal. They spend 12 weeks practicing their social skills in preparation for the dance at a local night club. Working with their psychologist, they take the challenges expressed in their respective therapy groups from one level to the next: picking dates, dresses, and, ultimately, a King and Queen of the Prom.
