TDPS Wednesdays: Innovations in Inclusivity

Innovations in Inclusivity

MFA Dance candidate Christine Hands has spent the last year checking out every book on disability studies from UMD's library. This summer, she decided to get out of the library and headed to AXIS Dance Company's Physically Integrated Summer Intensive and Teacher Training. (AXIS Dance Company is a nationally renowned dance company in Oakland, California working with dancers with and without visible physical disabilities.)

The floor will be open, so come with questions!
