IDEA Series #5: Dancing with Disabilities
This session will include a discussion with dance artists and leaders in Oregon's disability dance community.
How can dance culture and the dance community be more inclusive to those with visible and invisible disabilities?
What strategies have dance companies and programs utilize to identify and dismantle able-ism?
What work does the dance community have to normalize and make visible disabled dancers in professional and commercial dance spaces? In private studios and dance programs?
How has the COVID-19 pandemic impacted the disabled dance community and what strategies can improve inclusion and access during a major public health crisis?
The views expressed in each presentation are those of the speaker(s) and do not constitute endorsement of ODEO.
Professional development and clock hours credit are available upon request.
All sessions will be online via Zoom - a meeting link will be provided in the registration confirmation email.
