Dance as opportunity for everybody thanks to new category “Inclusive Dance (dancers with disabilities)”

Expressing yourself, your inner self, and growing interpersonal relationships represent the true spirit of Dance, the one with the capital "D". This is what IDA wants to celebrate for its 15th edition of the Expression International Dance Competition, one of the most high-profile contest on the European scene, through a new category called "Inclusive Dance (Dancers with disabilities)".

Saturday 23rd of February, in the afternoon, dancers with physical or mental disabilities will perform (in different styles) in duo or in group together with able-bodied dancers on the stage of the Basilica Pavilion, get ready ad hoc for the occasion without any architectural barrier.

In order to promote this initiative, disabled dancers will get free entry while for their co-dancers without disabilities participation fees (entrance ticket included) are listed in the regulation.

Dance and disability is a theme widely felt by Danzainfiera, the major dance event where Expression International Dance Competition takes place.

The claim of the 2019’s edition of Danzainfiera will be "Behind every step there is a great story" (#storiedidanza) because the main purpose of this year is describing private life and professional experiences of dancers and artists, including those with impairments. For instance, it will be shared Chiara Pedroni’s journey, a young disabled woman who has become athlete in a wheelchair, or Simone Sistarelli’s life, as creator for Popping for Parkinson's project, which aims to transform negative symptoms like tremors into an expressive and artistic language through Popping.
