DanceAbility: Moving Moments

A dance performance featuring people with and without disabilities. Pieces will be selected from DanceAbility’s repertoire of original choreography by founder and Artistic Director Alito Alessi. DanceAbility uses improvisational dance to promote artistic expression and exploration between people with and without disabilities. “Every body can make every movement. Any one part of the body can both experience and express every emotion that exists,” says Alito, the co-founder and artistic director of DanceAbility. Watch the magic of his incredible team in this 2016 Oregon Arbeat segment from OPB.
