DanceAbility is a dance method founded by Alito Alessi in 1987 and uses improvisational dance to promote artistic expression and exploration between people with and without disabilities.
Through experiencing movement together, misconceptions and/or prejudices that able-bodied or disabled people might have about themselves and each other are uprooted. DanceAbility workshops provide a supportive atmosphere for attitudes to change, and for people to learn about the beauty and joy of communicating through movement.
The primary goals of DanceAbility are to provide opportunities for people with and without disabilities, and people from different cultures to come together for artistic exploration and community-building, as well as to help explore and uproot misconceptions and prejudice between people with and without disabilities.
