Brazilian Dance Testimonial
"Instructor Stefanie B. was amazing - supportive, uplifting, vibing with us all, and sharing such critical and powerful info regarding the origins, history and current social contexts of this dance! Appreciated mods for physical integration with lower body mobilities. It was also very easy for me to understand, spoken clearly and repeated with physical movements, which can sometimes be a challenge for me."
Urban Jazz Dance
"Wonderful, unique experience for me. Antoine was all heart and soul. He is a kind and patient teacher. He is very welcoming to different bodies and movement styles."
"Very fun! I was so glad I participated in this. I loved everything about it and felt like once more I CAN DANCE! I loved how Auti just showed us the choreo and had us try it out like a real class."
If you are looking for a fun, engaging and inclusive dance experience that will get you and your community moving, this is the right opportunity for you!
Dance for All Bodies loves to work with support groups, student groups and community organizations as we are all about connecting and giving back to the community. Fun fact: We actually started this non-profit after a dance class at an amputee support group at San Francisco General Hospital, so we love connecting with more support groups, whether it is for Spinal Cord Injury, Breast Cancer Survivors or Acquired Disability Support Groups we are here to get you moving. All you need is a body and comfortable space for you to move.
Here is what to expect: An inclusive dance workshop is a high energy dance class where people with and without disabilities can participate.
Our instructors will guide you through movements options specifically addressing the access needs of the audiences at the event. They will demonstrate and suggest moves, ideas and dance technique that you will use learn new rhythms and explore new parts of yourself!
We aim to make our classes accessible and inclusive to people of all abilities; however we understand that this is not an all size fits all programming. Therefore we are always looking for ways to grow and improve our services to make sure we are really considering all abilities and bodies.
We center our dance class around having fun and finding your own voice and expression. And while all of our classes are focused on creating a space for self-expression and exploration through dance, our instructors use different music, rhythms and techniques to get you moving.
Length: Our dance classes are usually one (1) hour long, but we have also done 30 and 90 minute long classes.
Dance Class Styles: Our dance class offerings are in very unique styles such as, but not limited to, Flamenco, Urban Jazz and Brazilian dancing. We work with instructors with diverse backgrounds, not only in terms of their disability, but also in terms of the ethnic, cultural or racial perspectives they bring into their creative work. We will schedule a dance class based on your interests, availability and our instructors’ availability. Below is a list of all the different dance styles we offer, you can also learn more about each style here:
Contemporary Brazilian Dance
Closed Captions & ASL: We will have closed captioning available. Based on the needs of your community, we will also schedule an ASL interpreter for your class with an extra fee.
If you are interested in learning more about disability inclusion, allyship and intersectionality…You can also schedule us to do a 30 minute or 1 hour presentation & workshop at the end of your dance class. This presentation, put together by the founders of DfAB, can address any of the topics mentioned above! If there is a specific topic you would like to learn more about or that you would like us to highlight, you can mention that in your message when you fill out the contact form.
