All In: Engaging Audiences with Disabilities
April 6, 2016 2:00-3:15 EST
Today, the dance field strives to be inclusive of all audiences, who vary in their physical and cognitive abilities. Hear from EDA grantees about how they plan and prepare accessible programs designed to reach audiences with disabilities. Grantees and their programs are: Cincinnati Ballet Company’s Gentle Nutcracker, attended by children with disabilities such as autism and Down syndrome and their families; Millersville University’s residency with Axis Dance Company, designed for audiences of mixed physical abilities and wounded warriors; and Keshet Dance Company’s repertory integrating dancers with disabilities throughout New Mexico.
