AXIS Dance Company invites disabled, non-disabled, and neurodiverse dancers and educators from around the world to engage, share, and learn from one another and the AXIS artists for our IN-PERSON 5-day Intensive, July 22-28, 2023.

We are excited to announce that the 2023 Intensive is being held in partnership with the Cal State East Bay (CSUEB) Theatre and Dance Department in Hayward, CA. All classes will be held on-campus, and participants will have the opportunity to book ADA accessible and affordable housing through CSUEB on a first come, first served basis. Please note that AXIS does not provide stipends for travel, housing, or meals.

Participants have the opportunity to experience three modules derived from the company’s working ethos and repertoire, designed to enhance and further develop their own practices in improvisation, choreography & performance, and dance education. Our Teacher Training module provides dance educators and experienced artists the chance to develop and enhance skills—exploring tools and working methods in inclusive dance and translation for disabled dancers. In addition to the three modules, we offer programming focused on fully accessible movement classes that close with “Radical Chats” – facilitated discussions on disability dance culture, community-building and advocacy.

INTENSIVE DATES: July 24-28, 2023.
