DISABILITY PRIDE MONTH
July is Disability Pride Month in New York City! Join Dance/NYC in celebrating by sharing how you advance integrated and disability dance artistry, work made and performed by and with disabled dancers. Join the conversation on Instagram and Twitter, and create a temporary Facebook profile picture with our Disability. Dance. Artistry. frame. Don’t forget to tag us and use the hashtag #DisabilityDanceArtistry.

Throughout July, we will be sharing NEW YORKERS FOR DANCE video statements by New Yorkers for Dance who are integrated and disability dance artistry creators, performers, advocates, educators, and audiences. Check out our new montage today, and stay tuned for releases all month long.
