Self-expression is a fundamental part of being human. The arts—dance, theatre, music, painting, and more—exist because of a profound need to express ourselves; and for many people, the arts serve as a bridge to a deeper connection to themselves, to others, to independence, to self-esteem, and to life.
Come witness the power the inclusive arts can have for people with disabilities during a performance by the talented young dancers from the National Dance Institute (NDI)* and the DREAM Project.
The show will be followed by an opportunity to speak with the performers, children with and without disabilities ages 7 to 15, and their parents, as well as DREAM Co-directors Kay Gayner (NDI Associate Artistic Director) and Agnes Ferro (Pediatric Physical Therapist) about their experience in this unique program. All audience members will receive a comprehensive list of arts programs available to people with disabilities in New York City.
