Dance/NYC to Host Series of Town Halls on Disability and Dance
Join Dance/NYC for a series of conversations at the intersection of disability and dance. Each event pairs a New York City dance leader with an (inter)national guest working at this nexus.
The goal is to forge a place for disabled artists/artistry in New York's cultural ecosystem - a place where disabled artists can flourish. Dance/NYC invites you to work with us to create new places for disabled artists in NYC's cultural landscape.

The series extends Dance/NYC's Disability. Dance. Artistry. initiative, which aims to advance professional development, and further the artistry of disabled dancers in integrated settings and in settings exclusively for disabled dancers. It will bring new (inter)national voices together with NYC dance leaders. It also coincides with a national initiative and set of convenings across the United States undertaken by AXIS Dance Company with support from the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation and Dance/USA, the national service organization for professional dance. Dance/NYC works in alliance with Dance/USA.
