In 2014 People Dancing commissioned a film programme that aimed to support a change in perception around dance and disability.
The first film created was 'Physically Being Me' which speaks to six Deaf and disabled artists about their professional dance journey. This film aimed to inspire disabled people to participate in dance opportunities. The film was shared on Skys community channel for 2 years and around the world, it has had over 30,000 views.
As a follow up in 2016 we created a series of six films which covered a number of different subject matter, from adapting work, inspired stories, to youth dance initiatives. The majority of the films were commissioned in partnership with other organisations including the MS Association, Dance4 and Para Dance UK.
This film programme accompanied the 11 Million Reasons to Dance exhibition on tour.
