AXIS is seeking ambassadors of physically-integrated dance. Ever want to be an ambassador of dance and disability within your community? Ever desire to effect change in making dance accessible to everyone regardless of physical ability? AXIS offers a unique opportunity for individuals to help spread the word and gain visibility and national support for our work, and for this rare dance form through membership on our Board.

Previous Board or other relevant experience is very helpful. Staff will meet with interested candidates so they can feel informed of who AXIS is and what we do.
