Parsons Dance Sensory Friendly Programs

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. Choregus Productions is excited to bring these programs to Tulsa.

Sensory Friendly Workshops

These sensory-friendly workshops for children on the autism specturm create an open environment for the exploration of movement and dances with rhythm and music. Workshop curriculum was developed in collaboration with the Dance Education Laboratory at the 92nd Street Y, under the guidance of licensed psychologist, board certified dance therapist and dance educator, Diane Duggan. Students focus on fundamentals of movement: one action at a time, step by step learning, how everyday actions can be repeatable, moving separately and moving as a group, and music and rhythm.  Multiple workshops will be presented at no charge.  Watch this space for announcement of schedule, July 25–28, 2018

Relaxed Performance

This autism friendly performance gives the audience 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.
