Part of AXIS’ mission is to educate about dance & disability. We do that a lot. The other day Bonnie and Annika taught a class to 3rd graders at a wonderful school in San Francisco. For weeks they’ve worked on disability & accessibility ( even becoming “accessibility detectives” ) and AXIS was invited to teach a guest workshop. We danced, we talked, asked questions and answered question, and had so much fun. Here is a response from the teacher:
Thanks again to you (Annika) and Bonnie for such an inspiring workshop. That was what my students called it, “inspiring.” You both have such a powerful way of communicating with the kids. I had the sense while I was standing there watching them that this was going to be one of those life-changing experiences they remember for years to come.
I’m just sad I have to wait until next year to do it with another class.” 3rd Grade Teacher
