We are excited to announce that AXIS has received Dizzy Feet Foundation Community Program funding for 2013 to support our first Physically Integrated Dance Summer Intensive for Youth. With the support of DFF we will be able to provide about 20 youth with and without disabilities between the ages of 15-20 the opportunity to participate in this Summer Intensive for Youth. During a 5 day creative laboratory, young dancers with and without disabilities will be introduced to elements of Physically Integrated Dance. Students are guaranteed to push their limits and break new ground as they experiment, collaborate, and create. (If you like to learn more about this program contact our Education Director.)
DFF provides grants to community organizations and other tax-exempt entities in the United States, which provide dance education programs to children in low-income areas and disadvantaged communities. Through its grant recipients, DFF seeks to give children the experience of dance, to educate them about the many styles of dance, and to expose them to the lifelong benefits of dance.
