A first date, a first dance, a first kiss—these rites of passage for young people from all walks of life in America and around the world distill the excitement, embarrassment, and trepidation of the transition to adulthood. But for some teenagers and young adults on the autism spectrum, the first steps towards social intimacy are a far more daunting proposition. This moving and entertaining film focuses on a group of young people as they prepare for an iconic event: a spring formal dance. Working with their psychologist, they bit by bit deconstruct fear and larger-than-life anxiety as they pick dates, dresses, and, ultimately, a king and queen of the prom. How to Dance in Ohio dramatizes with extraordinary poignancy the universal human need to grow, connect, and belong.
