Our Mission

Our Vision

Dismantling ableism through access-centered dance classes, community-based learning, and equitable access workshops.

A joyful, access-centered dance community where people can show up as their full authentic selves.

How We Do It

By organizing free, inclusive and physically integrated dance classes where people of all abilities are welcome! Currently all of our classes are take place virtually on the Zoom platform. We offer Closed Captions in all of our classes. 

So often dance is seen only on a certain kind of body and certain kind of ability. But dance actually belongs to all of us — to people of every shade, height, size and ability. We aim to make people of all abilities feel more welcome in dance, because everyone should have the opportunity to feel the power of dance. Just like Alvin Ailey, we believe that “dance came from the people and that it should always be delivered back to the people”.
