No dance experience necessary.ALL abilities and disabilities welcome!
The classes are taught by Certified Master DanceAbility Teacher Jana Meszaros, a choreographer, dancer and movement educator with a BA in Dance from the University of Oregon and over 10 years teaching experience. She says this of the classes: "we explore shapes, movement, and togetherness in a supportive and inventive environment."
Jana guides participants through dance and movement exercises and explorations that build camaraderie, physical awareness, and expressive capabilities. The DanceAbility method is a contemporary dance practice and always ensures that nobody is isolated, regardless of abilities or disabilities.
For the youth classes, non-disabled siblings of participants with disabilities are encouraged and welcome to join. For adult classes, people without disabilities who are interested in the magical experience of connecting through creative movement and the study of improvisation are encouraged and welcome to attend, alongside those with disabilities.
Classes are $80-$100 sliding scales for a 10-week session. Full and partial scholarships are available to all who need them, and nobody will be turned away due to financial hardship. Drop-ins ($10 per class or by donation) are welcome too.
