Colorful banner featuring three AXIS dancers. The left side of the banner features AXIS Dance Company's logo and the words "30 more years of rule breaking" in large font with a colorful gradient. In the center, dancer Carina Ho does a backbend with her legs over the back of her wheelchair, her palms flat on the ground, and her back resting on the seat. Dancers Julie Crothers and Lani Dickinson execute jumps and leaps with their arms and legs extended. In the background behind the dancers are five large, colorful, overlapping arrows that point toward the right, where the AXIS 30th anniversary logo sits in the lower corner. Photo by David DeSilva.

AXIS August Dance Jam

Start your week off on a high note with AXIS Dancers and community members at our Community Dance Jam! This month's jam will be led by former AXIS dancer Juliana Monin with live musical accompaniment by New Music percussionist Joel Davel. These jams are open to the public, and create an informal space to which dancers of all types and backgrounds are invited to explore their bodies in a kinesthetic relationship to others.
