AXIS Dance Company

AXIS Dance Company is highly regarded the world over for its unflagging artistic and educational standards and for paving the way for physically integrated dance within the contemporary dance community. More than any other physically integrated company in the U.S., AXIS Dance Company has been a bridge between contemporary dance and physically integrated dance.

Through its model education programs Dance Access and its youth component Dance Access/KIDS!, AXIS offers classes and workshops, school assemblies, presentations, lecture demonstrations and residencies locally and abroad for adults and youth of all abilities.

The company of seven dancers with and without disabilities has performed in theaters and dance spaces at its home base in the Bay Area, on tour throughout the U.S., as well as in Germany and Russia. AXIS was featured on KQED’s SPARK program and KRCB’s One in 5 Stories. AXIS Dance Company is a many-time Isadora Duncan Dance Award (Izzie) winner and was featured on the nationally broadcast FOX television show “So You Think You Can Dance” in 2011 and 2012.
