CBS 62 is excited to be partnering with Olympia Entertainment and Autism Alliance of Michigan to bring local families an autism-friendly ‘Sesame Street Live’ performance of “Let’s Dance!” at the Fox Theatre. Accommodations will make the theater experience more enjoyable for children with autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and other sensory difficulties.
Hosted by two live performers, ‘Sesame Street Live’ “Let’s Dance!” offers an up-close, interactive experience like you’ve never experienced before! You, the audience, are invited to dance as all of your favorite Sesame Street friends join you on the floor – dancing with fans of all ages! In addition to ongoing dance parties, Elmo uses his imagination to “Do the Robot,” Cookie Monster teaches all ‘feets’ to dance, and Ernie shares the fun of dance with the Sesame Street favorite “Shake Your Head One Time.”READ MORE: 'Our Goal Is To Be 100% Balance,' City Clerk Janice Winfrey Prepares For August 3rd Primary Elections, Wants Ballots Balanced
