Sensory Friendly Dance Performances
CDP's Sensory Friendly Dance Performances invited individuals living with autism, sensory, social and learning disabilities, and their families, to a live dance performance designed to make everyone feel accepted, safe, and comfortable in an inclusive theater environment. Since 2017, CDP presented this performance series for over 800 audience members, and thanks to many generous sponsors & donors we were able to keep ticket prices at an affordable $5, as well as offer 300 free tickets to struggling families.
Sensory Friendly Dance Classes
Beginning in 2018, thanks to a California Art Council grant award, CDP developed introductory dance classes series for individuals with autism, or other related disabilities, to participate in the power of dance! The classes offered individuals of all ages the opportunity to express themselves in a judgement free zone, benefit from power of physical exercise, and the ability to socialize in a nurturing and inclusive environment.
