We believe that dance is for every body.
We welcome differently-abled participants between the ages of 15 and 30 to join this creative movement-exploration workshop conducted by ILL-Abilities, an international break dance crew comprising seven professional dancers who are differently-abled. This workshop aims to provide a platform for participants to discover their own strengths through creative movements, team activities, exercises and challenges.
Drawing inspiration from hip hop culture, the “ill” in ILL-Abilities does not mean “sick” or “unwell”. Rather, it refers to something positive, in this instance the incredible talent and dance abilities of the crew. The dancers of ILL-Abilities strive to inspire others and spread positive thinking through their optimistic attitudes, personal stories and unique dance moves.
Pre-registration is required and participants should fall under these criteria:
• Individuals with disabilities (physical, sensory, developmental and/or intellectual)
• Able to follow simple verbal cues and instructions
• Aged between 15 to 30 years old
Please note that to ensure the safety of all participants, the workshop will be limited to a maximum of 25 participants. An accompanying aide can be present with the participant, if required. Please register and share your access needs with us.
This programme is presented as part of da:ns focus – EveryBody, a weekend of dance with inclusivity, diversity and participation, where we encourage everybody and every body to experience dance.
