From the desk of Guest Editor, and AXIS Dance Company board member, Rebecca Fortelka.
At AXIS Dance Company in my over two years as a board member, I have had such a unique opportunity to positively impact so many people and network with several thought leaders in the community.
While having the opportunity to learn more about world of dance and disability, by being a board member you become a brand ambassador. By being this brand ambassador, you are sharing AXIS' mission: AXIS exists to change the face of dance and disability. While on the board, you will not only be spreading this mission, but you will be afforded the opportunity to connect with Bay Area business leaders, disability rights activists, as well as people who are passionate about dance and culture.
In addition to being a brand ambassador while serving on the board, you will have the opportunity to have a national culture and disability leadership position. This will allow you to have a positive impact and change how the world sees the integrated dance world.
We at AXIS pride ourselves as having a stellar model for diversity and inclusion on the stage. We are considered a national brand. We challenge societal norms and really think outside of the box to showcase a diverse group of dancers with all types of backgrounds and abilities. While on the board, you will experience the behind the scenes magic of AXIS and be a part of something truly ground breaking!
So, if you are looking to be a part of a fun and innovative group that truly embodies change, please consider joining our board of directors. To learn more, please take a look our Board brochure.
