Dance, Deaf and Disabled People

Given the key principle of community dance - every body can dance with intention and purpose and working on the basis of what people can do rather than what they can't - community dance offers wide ranging opportunities for disabled people to engage with dance: personal and collective expression, advocacy for disabled people in the wider community, artistic skills, active and healthy leisure activities and professional opportunities within dance and the arts.
