ESO Dances are sponsored by the Barber National Institute for adults ages 18 and up with an intellectual disability and their college aged peers. The ESO dances are held at Edinboro, Penn State Behrend, Gannon and Mercyhurst Universities during the academic months. (ESO Dances may be held at another location if a college is unable to host a dance.) ESO Dances extend an open invitation to adults with an intellectual disability to enjoy an evening of fun, dancing, and friendship with their peers.
College students serve as volunteers at the dances and promote a great deal of interaction with the dancers. Plenty of volunteers
Locations are subject to change. Please watch the flyers for the correct location. For the safety of our dancers, children are not permitted to be at the ESO dances.
