A Sacramento dance organization is inviting the autistic community to a live Peter Rabbit ballet this weekend. The program is designed to make everyone feel accepted and comfortable in an inclusive environment.

The goal of Sensory Friendly Dance is to provide accessible dance lessons and performances for neurodiverse and neurotypical people.

“We turn the music down, keep the lights on, and provide a soothing corner in the lobby where kids can play with fidget toys. There are therapists on hand in case they get overwhelmed or over stimulated, to help them relax and enjoy the experience,” said Alexandra Cunningham, director of Sensory Friendly Dance. “We offer noise canceling headphones as well as a story, which outlines what to expect during the performance, in English and Spanish.”

Sensory Friendly Dance’s performance of Peter Rabbit will take place on August 13 at 2 p.m. at Sofia, home of the B Street Theatre. Tickets are $5.
