Our Mission

DanceAbility International’s mission is to create opportunities for people with and without disabilities to dance and move together. Our vision is that through dance and movement, people from very diverse backgrounds experience the art of being together.

The work of DanceAbility® International helps decrease
prejudice and misconceptions
about diversity in the
field of dance, and by
extension in society.

“I believe that DanceAbility® goes beyond movement exploration and is, for many people their first opportunity to define themselves in their own terms and see that this dance form, like their lives, has many options and possibilities.”

~Susan Sygall,

Executive Director,

Mobility International U.S.A.
