This documentary will chronicle the challenges and triumphs these women experience preparing for a spring formal. Making friends. Dating. Fitting in at work. Becoming independent. These challenges can be hard for any young adult, but for those with autism, coming of age can be paralyzing.
In Columbus, Ohio, three young women living with autism now face perhaps the biggest challenge yet: a spring formal dance. Encouraged to face their fears head-on, they are preparing to test their abilities.
HOW TO DANCE IN OHIO charts the months leading up to the big day, going inside therapy sessions, as young women and men confront anxieties, learn dance moves and practice their social skills, aided by a trusted psychologist and his staff, as well as supportive families.
An official selection at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and winner of the Audience Award at 2015 Full Frame Film Festival, this heartwarming documentary debuts Monday, October 26 (9:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO.
