Now Booking: In-Person & Virtual Assemblies
AXIS Dance Company offers mind-opening assembly performances and dance workshops for grades K-12. The programs showcase innovative, contemporary choreography and emphasize collaboration among disabled, non-disabled and neurodiverse people.
We are now booking in-person assemblies & dance workshops for March 2024! Virtual assemblies are also offered on a rolling basis.
AXIS Assemblies provide students with the exciting experience of enjoying a live AXIS performance. AXIS dancers showcase artistic repertory, provide educational information on disability, share personal dance history, and introduce the audience to an integrated dance experience. Programs include a 5-minute Q&A session at the end, and an Activity Guide for teachers to use with their students prior to and after the assembly. AXIS assemblies promote tolerance, inclusion, and acceptance of disabled people. Students will leave with a broader definition of what dance can be and what a dancer looks like, and are empowered with the message that anything is possible. Virtual assembly option available.
