AXIS Dance Company pledges to work towards full accessibility for all D/deaf and disabled people in all of our programs and services.
In our in-person and online performances, classes, and events, our goal is to always
center access from the ground up instead of adding accommodations as an
afterthought. We will always be working towards achieving full accessibility; there is no
‘perfect’ way to provide access for all, and we always have more to learn. Do you have
any feedback or accommodations that aren’t being met? Please fill out our feedback form below.
