The goal of the AXIS Choreo-Lab Fellowship is to develop, refine and advance the artistic skills of disabled choreographers. The Lab offers an inclusive environment where established, disabled artists mentor their peers to challenge boundaries and create perception changing art. During the Lab, participants will be led through a creation process stemming from their own concept, collaborating with an integrated group of performers including AXIS dancers and professional dancers from the local community. The Lab provides studio space, dancers, and administrative support for every choreographer. This opportunity also includes ongoing mentorship and professional development support in the year following the Lab.
