"How to Dance in Ohio" debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
"How to Dance in Ohio" asks the question, how do you prepare for the social event of the season when socializing itself can be paralyzing?

In the HBO documentary, three young women, each living with autism, ready themselves for a teenage rite of passage: The spring formal. Their preparation includes rituals both familiar (dress shopping, dance lessons) and uniquely challenging (therapy). Directed by Alexandra Shiva, the moving film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year.
"How to Dance in Ohio" premieres on HBO on October 26. Watch the exclusive trailer above.
