AXIS Dance Company: A Moving Experience

It seems like it’s been years since we were able to gather as a group and have an experience together. But it was only a fewTwo dancers, one in a wheelchair  months ago that The IC partnered with the ENT Center for the Arts and Colorado Springs Dance Theatre (CSDT) to present a performance by AXIS Dance Company. The nation’s most highly acclaimed physicallyintegrated dance company, AXIS performed “Radical Impact” at the ENT Center for the Performing Arts in February. Through the artistry of dancers both with and without disabilities, the piece explored what it means to be human.

As part of this partnership, The IC also collaborated with the US Olympic and Paralympic Training Center to present a movement workshop at their facility. Led by AXIS Dance Company dancers, this workshop offered movers of all ages and abilities the chance to dance in a safe and respectful environment. It was an experience no one who was there will forget!
