This Teacher Orientation Course provides basic DanceAbility exercises and theory for immediate application by dance educators, teachers, therapists, dancers, people with disabilities and all participants who attend, who want to lead movement improvisation and mixed-abilities inclusive dance. 

The training includes the following: 
• Foundation exercises introducing basic concepts of movement improvisation for people of all abilities, based on things that all participants can do
• How to guide people to be aware of their potential for movement and for communication
• Movement explorations and games for individuals, partners, and small and large groups
• How groups can create their own performance pieces
• How to lead work in self-directing small groups, to shape short dance pieces
• Integration of Contact Improvisation: learning to improvise using physical contact

The DanceAbility method has been developed over 30 years by Alito Alessi. He has been recognized as a Guggenheim Fellow for this work and his dance company has been awarded National Endowment for the Arts awards and other major recognitions.

People with physical disabilities are welcome to attend. As this is a professional dance educator training, it will not be suitable for most people with mental disabilities, nor can the pace accommodate blind people.
