About This Activity

Description

Registration for this activity is either not needed or not allowed online. Please see text below for additional information or call the Senior Center at 319-356-5220.

DanceAbility is a method that uses improvisation and contemporary modern dance to make dance available to all people whether they are highly trained dancers, beginning dancers, persons with disabilities or using mobility devices. Dancers learn through structured improvisation to make individual choices that enhance the design of the dance. Participants are given unique exercises to invent their own choreography. Dance is the perfect artistic medium to facilitate inclusion because dance is based on creating unity. Our goal is to create a diverse dance community in class and in performance that is a realistic reflection of the society we live in. Sarah Furnish is the Artistic Director for Infinity Dance Company and the only certified DanceAbility instructor in Iowa. DanceAbiity training gives certified DaneAbility instructors the tools to work with highly trained dancers, brand new dancers, dancers who use a wheelchair, dancers who are amputees, who are blind or have other mental or physical conditions all at the same time. For more information contact Sarah Furnish at 319-594-6178. Fee: $60/month or $20 per drop-in, pay Infinity Dance Company at the beginning of class.
