Sydney Creative Movement: inclusive dance opportunities

Are you a dancer with a disability or looking for programs for a dancer with a disability?  Sydney Creative Movement has an excellent website detailing classes, and locations, and showcasing their ongoing development. You will see that several people with Down syndrome dance with Sydney Creative Movement:

Here at Sydney Creative movement we believe that dance should be inclusive so we run programs that can be attended by anyone regardless of their ability! Our inclusive contemporary class is attended by a group of dancers with and without disabilities who meet each week to learn contemporary dance technique, improvisation skills and how to develop your own choreography. By making the content of the classes skills based, rather then strictly about technique, as you might experience in other contemporary classes everybody is able to work to their own ability. Having so many people of such varying abilities in one space certainly makes for a refreshing exchange of ideas!     What exactly is inclusive dance? Sydney Creative Movement

A Hip Hop class began earlier this year, and the Legends of Hip Hop performance group is flourishing - they are currently preparing for the  Accessible Dance Showcase, 2012 on 1st December.
