Welcome to All Bodies Dance


 

In ABDP’s inclusive dance practice, differences are regarded as creative strengths and dancers explore the choreographic possibilities of wheelchairs, crutches, canes and celebrate diverse ways of moving and perceiving. The company’s work straddles between labels of community-engaged and professional practice.


They aim to dismantle assumptions, biases and default notions around contemporary dance, the theatre and the dancing body. Through mentorship and training, the company is helping to develop a new and under-represented group of dance-makers, teachers and artistic leaders with a unique set of values and approaches.
