“We people with handicaps are not used to people loving our bodies. Normally what you learn as handicapped people is that people are looking at what is missing, what doesn’t work, and nobody is looking at what is here and what we can do. So this work really supports a different view than what most people have. That’s the most important thing I learned from the work you are doing: you are looking for what is here and then you are doing something with that. You give people back love for their bodies, and do that by moving, by playing and developing more possibilitiesto move.”

How You Can Help

DanceAbility International is supported by private donations and grants. One of our goals is to bring the community affordable opportunities to be involved in the arts. We are able to do this when individuals like you make the commitment to be one of our patrons. There are many ways you can get involved!

DanceAbility International announces a new fund, the Emery Blackwell Legacy Fund. Our initial goal is to raise $20,000 in 2014 to honor Emery Blackwell. Please visit our blog for more information regarding the fund and Emery Blackwell.
