Discussing Dance and Disability

Discussing Dance and Disability is a journalistic project seeking to investigate and dismantle the language and stereotypes often used to describe dancers with disabilities. Spearheaded by Emmaly Wiederholt (founder/editor of Stance on Dance) and Silva Laukkanen (mixed ability education director at Keshet Center for the Arts) with guidance from Alice Sheppard (director of Kinetic Light) and illustrations by Liz Brent, the team is compiling interviews with various dancers with disabilities around the country and world, asking about training, access and press, as well as looking at the state of the field.

Check back in the fall of 2018 for the first round of interviews!
