What Makes Danceability Unique?
Danceability is an inclusive art form
Danceability is the perfect artistic medium to facilitate inclusion because dance is based on creating unity. We strive to create a diverse dance community that is a realistic reflection of the society we live in, as we are each part of the whole.
DanceAbility is a process of non-isolation that builds relationships
We often work in pairs or groups so that no one is ever alone or ever left wondering what to do. Dancers learn through structured improvisation to make individual choices that enhance the design of the dance.
Dancers are taught sustainable techniques that last a lifetime
DanceAbility is a collaborative process that empowers each student to feel part of the whole wherever they happen to be. They provide the ability to express ourselves and to move in a healthy, meaningful way.

Looking back at all my dance experiences I wish I would have learned DanceAbility as a kid (along with the standard tap, jazz and ballet). I would have been a whiz by now in the spontaneous choreography department. I realized that one of the problems with traditional dance training is that they never teach you how to think on your feet (no pun intended). What they do teach you is how to become the very best copycat in the room, and if you can’t do it as good or better as the #1 Cool Cat, you’re out. DanceAbility, on the other foot, allows you the freedom and tools to improvise with anyone and everyone at any given moment!
