To Our Amazing DanceAbility Community
Thank you all for the financial and moral support you have given us in the months since COVID-19 upended all of our plans for 2020. In a time when our teaching and performance income has been severely restricted and every cent counts, your generous support has made it possible for us to continue to do our important work, adapting to this new, virtual world.

“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.
DanceAbility International’s mission is to dissolve barriers and connect people with and without disabilities through dance and movement. This mission is accomplished through classes, workshops and events for adults and children, performances, teacher trainings and educational materials for teachers of inclusive dance.
The work of Joint Forces Dance Company creates inclusive communities through dance.
The DanceAbility® Method
DanceAbility International's biggest contribution to shifting the culture of dance is the award-winning and world-renowned DanceAbility method and curriculum.
