A dance show sponsored by UC Davis’ Autism Awareness Association and Elite Dance Company aims to combine dance and education to promote autism awareness.
Called Spectrum: Dancing for Autism Awareness, the show will feature performances by Elite Dance Company, the Popping Club, Mobility and the Break Dance Club. In addition, an autism researcher and a parent whose child has autism will speak about the disorder. Thirty percent of the event’s proceeds will be donated to the UC Davis MIND Institute, which researches neurodevelopmental disorders.
Tickets may be purchased in advance from any Autism Awareness Association or Elite Dance Company member, or at the door for $12. The show will be held tonight at 7 p.m. at the Veterans’ Memorial Theater, 203 E. 14th St.
