The workshop taught by Ali Landers about inclusive choreography was eye opening.

I had never thought of such methods before.

I personally love how the limitations that were put upon us as a group increased our creativity.

Ali had us play with ideas using a wheelchair and a piece of material.

Her workshop was fun and intellectually enlarging.

Her workshop is what started my desire to make the dance community more inclusive.

I will be forever grateful for the experience and opportunity I had to learn about inclusive choreography from Ali Landers.

INCLUSIVE TRAINING

Transitioning the Dance Community: Inclusivity, Accessible & Adaptive

Whether you are a dance instructor, drama teacher, physical education teacher, special education teacher, or a student studying from these fields, you will benefit from training that incorporates how to teach from an inclusive and adaptive perspective.

This in-depth training is hands-on and experiential. It includes a broad and specific, unique approach, that enables you, the student, to comprehend and embody a neutral mindset and style that will give you confidence as an inclusive/adaptive instructor, dancer, and choreographer.

Being a confident inclusive and adaptive instructor requires a change in perception. Your perspective, language, and actions must shift to a more inclusive way of thinking. This takes practice, reflection, and asking some at times difficult questions.

This training gives you space, practice, and nurturing to do all those things in a way that supports you on your journey.

We discuss hard topics, we ask questions the mainstream doesn't often think about, and we practice together in a supportive way that allows you to be vulnerable and gain confidence and compassion.
