Engaging Audiences for Integrated and Disability Dance Artistry

Dance/NYC’s current research on integrated and disability dance artistry delves into the needs and challenges of practicing and performing integrated and disability dance artistry in the metropolitan area from the perspective of the Disability. Dance. Artistry. Fund grantees. This session, focused on the nexus of disability and dance, invites respondents and participants to consider: What barriers do integrated and disability dance artistry makers experience in working to engage disabled and nondisabled local audiences? What strategies are effective for engaging local audiences?
