Sensory Friendly Dance (SFD) invites everyone, especially Sacramento's neurodiverse community, to experience the power of dance! SFD offers neurodivergent individuals a space to express themselves in judgement-free dance classes, benefit from the physicality of dance, and socialize in a nurturing and sensory sensitive classroom environment. Similarly, SFD’s performances open their doors to everyone in the community by relaxing traditional theater rules, cultivating an accepting environment, and by providing an inclusive space for neurodiverse and neurotypical individuals to engage in the performing arts together.

Giving Activity


Sensory Friendly Dance's mission is to provide accessible dance classes and performances designed for neurodiverse and neurotypical individuals to enjoy together in an inclusive, welcoming, and accepting environment.


Your donation will support Sensory Friendly Dance 2024 performance. With your help, we will be able to sponsor our low cost and free ticket programs, so all families have access to performing arts experiences.

Since SFD's founding in 2017, we have annually donated 100 free tickets for families with a financial need to attend our performance free of charge. We have also kept general admission ticket prices to our performances just $5 per person.

SFD believes that the arts are for everyone and thanks to your support on Big Day of Giving, we are able to transform that belief into action.

Equity Statement

The core of SFD is to enhance inclusivity in the Sacramento dance community. The vitality of the Sacramento Arts community is strengthened and energized when everyone is welcomed to participate. While SFD classes and performances are designed with an autistic individual in mind, SFD events welcome everyone, both neurodiverse and neurotypical participants. SFD is plays a critical role in making the Sacramento Arts community a more accepting, inclusive, and accessible place.
