Building on its mission of delivering life-affirming, inspiring dance experiences worldwide, Parsons Dance has created targeted performances that ensure that all audiences, regardless of ability, have the opportunity to connect with the universal language of dance. These autism friendly performances give audiences the freedom to express themselves and react openly while watching the dancers and hearing the music. Sensory stimuli such as lights and sound are modified and the theater designates quiet spaces to take a break. A Parsons Dance representative navigates the audience through the performance, pausing between each piece to tell the audience what to look for and to answer questions. This ensures that the performance moves at an accessible pace and makes it interactive, engaging, and comfortable for all audiences.
