The award-winning musician, Dane Zanes, will be performing this Friday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. at The Help Group’s Autism Center in Sherman Oaks, Calif. Students from Early Ed, Bridgeport School and Village Glen School will be in the audience enjoying the show. A special thanks to the Director of Education of Wallis Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts, Mark Slavkin, for making this special event possible.
With his band, Dan Zanes and Friends, he has toured the world sharing handmade 21st century social music with enthusiastic crowds of kids and kid sympathizers. From thrift shop basements to Carnegie hall, from Brooklyn to Bahrain and beyond, the Grammy award winner has been introducing new songs and reconnecting people to songs that have always been there, and still are—although people may have forgotten about them. Referred to as “the family-music genre’s most outspoken and eloquent advocate” by Time Magazine, his widely- acclaimed music has been featured on “Sesame Street,” Playhouse Disney, Nickelodeon, HBO Family and Sprout.
Dan’s sensory friendly shows are designed to create an accepting and comfortable environment for all children and their families. Thoughtful consideration has been given to those with special needs so that they may fully connect to the music. There is a manageable degree of stimuli in a relaxed and inviting atmosphere. All who attend are encouraged to express themselves freely and openly. Please note that these shows are inclusive and created for all audiences.
We look forward to sharing this beautiful experience with you!
