Although we are making some <BR>changes in our facility, we will be able to welcome many students to this <BR>wonderful experience. <P>We encourage you to come and enjoy two hours of dancing with no boundaries <BR>and at no cost! . Ms. Jo Matos, our expert facilitator will be available to <BR>answer any questions regarding our program.<P>Right after the workshop we will be having a 6-week session on Mondays at 4 <BR>pm.<P>Please, be kind to give us a call (305) 935 3232 to RSVP.

Welcome to our board Arts Ballet Theatre - it's a pleasure to have you join us.<P>Perhaps you could tell us more about your program?

Thanks so much for this post.<P>Hi all, should this thread be moved to Studio or Ballet perhaps?

I would really like to hear more about Dancing with Disabilities. I had considered working with diabled people with dance and some information from Florida would be much appreciated. Please tell us more.

I had an experience a few years back with a performer/choreographer named Jane Thiboutot - she used a wheelchair and taught us to as well, though we didn't always use them - she also had us use theraballs. <P>I'd be interested in hearing more about the program at Arts Ballet Theatre. Image

AXIS Dance Company, based in the SF Bay Area, is a remarkable troupe of both able-bodied and disabled dancers. I just love how they push the imaginations of guest choreographers the likes of Bill T Jones, Joe Goode, Stephen Petronio, et al. They pretty much dominated the <a href=../../../ubb/Forum11/HTML/000016.html target=_blank><B>Izzies</B></a>, SF's dance awards, this year. Here are some threads about the company:<P><a href=../../../ubb/Forum5/HTML/000131.html target=_blank><B>AXIS Dances Works by Bill T. Jones, Joe Goode, Sonya Delwaide and Joanna Haigood</B></a><P><a href=../../../ubb/Forum5/HTML/000235.html target=_blank><B>AXIS Dance Company to Feature Dream Repertory</B></a><P><a href=../../../ubb/Forum5/HTML/000723.html target=_blank><B>AXIS Dance Company's 'Voyages Elsewhere and Between'</B></a><P><BR>Coincidentally, one of the co-ADs at AXIS was also at Candoco in London. Perhaps, Stuart and Emma can talk about that company.<P>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited July 07, 2001).]<p>[This message has been edited by Azlan (edited July 07, 2001).]
