Sensory-Friendly Dance Performance
Friday, August 25th
Capital Dance Project is thrilled to announce our newest production of Sacramento’s first Sensory-Friendly Dance Performance in partnership with the Sacramento Kings and The Kings Foundation. CDP will invite individuals living with autism, sensory, social and learning disabilities, and their families, to a live dance performance that is designed to make everyone feel accepted, safe and comfortable in a theater environment. This Sensory-Friendly performance is just one way that CDP is committed to making dance accessible to everyone in the Sacramento region. It is our mission to uplifting the spirit of our community through the power of art and shared experience.
What is a Sensory-Friendly Performance?
Sensory-Friendly performances are designed to make everyone, particularly individuals on the autism spectrum, feel comfortable, accepted and safe in a theater environment. Traditional theater rules are relaxed and audience members are welcome to express themselves by getting up, playing with toys, dancing, talking, or singing. CDP will create an environment for families to experience a live dance performance and enjoy quality time without having to worry if someone will complain or be disturbed. This Sensory-Friendly performance is a great opportunity for families to meet, siblings of children with autism to get to know other kids, and individuals with related sensory disabilities to connect with the Sacramento community in a climate of acceptance and understanding.
