What is ability to groove?
Dance is an excellent way to express creativity, yet for young people with disabilities there can be obstacles. Ability to Groove is a program for people with disabilities to express their emotions through dance. Ability to Groove opens up a whole new world to individuals with disabilities, a world where they can just move, be free and self-expressive.
Eileen and Alexis offer a therapeutic environment that teaches not just dance routines, but social skills and how they can use their body to convey their emotions and their frustrations.
Eileen and Alexis are strong advocates in the disability community and heavily promote inclusion in the performing arts space.
