The half-day danceAble forum on June 28 is designed for artists, arts presenters, educators, and those who live with disabilities or work with the disabled community. The forum is a unique opportunity to share challenges and successes with South Florida, national and international leaders in the field of mixed ability arts.

danceAble is a collaborative project of Florida Dance Association and Tigertail Productions that began in 2000. It focuses on dance as a vital art form and a fundamental means of physical expression for persons with and without disabilities.

Support for danceAble is provided in part by the City of Miami/FACE, Office of Film, Arts, Culture and Entertainment; City of Miami Beach Cultural Affairs Program, Cultural Arts Council; Florida Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Arts Council; Miami Dade College, Cultural Affairs; Miami-Dade County Department of Cultural Affairs and the Mayor and Board of County Commissioners; National Endowment for the Arts, a federal agency; Southern Arts Federation and VSA arts of Florida.
