Abilities by Abilities Dance

Friday, February 3 at 7:30 PM


Abilities Dance presents their first show entitled "Abilities". This performance centers around how physical challenges can affect a person and their relationships, specifically familial and romantic. Throughout the dancers' personal and relationship struggles, they learn to find the strength within themselves, re-connect in their relationships, and embrace their abilities.


Abilities Dance was created to provide a professional platform for dancers of all physical abilities. We create the choreography to emphasize the dancers’ strengths and build on their limitations. We utilize composers to create music customized to the movements and emotions conveyed in the piece. The customized piece gives an organic and unique experience that will engage and inspire audiences.
