Inclusive and Accessible Dance.

One dimension of AD4L’s focus is inclusivity – finding and creating opportunities for providing inclusive, accessible dance.  Each individual, with or without a disability, is unique.   When individuality and disability is combined together a unique perspective within the disability is created – making it challenging to find the best way to connect with the individual.   To expand our knowledge on the subject information has been sought from various organizations such as Barrier Free Manitoba and TED.

Here are two excellent videos on living with Autism Spectrum Disorder and an interesting video on Music and the Mind, each gives us a unique perspective into living within a disability.
