Why are we offering Wheel Chair Dance Classes
Our Artistic Director has an invisible disability, and understands the challenges a person faces when integrating their own identity and style into a performance arts world that is still learning about disability, and the potential of their artisitic abilities. Difinity Dance was founded to break performer stereotypes and create performance and education opportunities for people with a wide-range of disabilities. We believe the audience, and disabled/ non-disabled performers alike deserve to discover the unique and beautiful choreography abilities just waiting to be explored.
"I dream of a world where we just see beauty in every single person with an open mind and heart." - Stephanie Strugar
