All Ages. [Sensory Friendly/Autism-Friendly]
“Fly me to the moon and let me play among the stars!” We do a special inclusive, neurodiverse event for children and teens of all abilities for Autism Awareness Month. Families will dance, sing along, and hear stories and songs about autism advocates who have had incredible success in their lives and careers. There will be bubbles, laughter, dancing, games, incredible visuals, and a story written and illustrated by Mr. Matt’s brother-in-law Tim who is on the Autism Spectrum. Kids will dance, sing, laugh, use their imaginations and connect with new friends. The show is crafted to be inclusive for all children, including children on the Autism Spectrum, and a great time for parents and caregivers! Each song in the show is accompanied by hands-on, visual, and sensory experiences designed to help kids learn and have fun at the same time.

Our Mission: To further early childhood development and autism intervention through incredible, affordable and fun sensory-friendly shows and assemblies. Our goal is to engage children with important social, emotional and educational topics. We believe that education happens both in and out of the classroom. Every child, regardless of developmental ability or socioeconomic status, should have a right to learn and grow to their fullest potential. Arts-integration in education is a vital tool for expanding young minds and building new, exciting connections between children and the world around them. At Turtle Dance Music, we strive to create a joyful musical experience that supports the teachers, librarians, principals and parents who teach and engage children every day. Our focus is to help the children, as well as the adults, come out of their shells.
