Executive Director

Mia is a DeafDisabled performing artist and filmmaker. Having had the pleasure of growing up in a dance company that truly believed dance is for everyone and then turned away from nearly all other dance companies for having the "wrong" body, they know firsthand how important accessible dance classes are.

With over 25 combined years of challenging what it means to be an artist, they are thrilled to bring all they have learned over the years to DfAB.
