Def Dance Jam Community


Mission Statement

Founded in 1994 and incorporated in 2000 by Aziza, Def Dance Jam Workshop is an inter-generational dance company and performing arts and academic program that brings together youth and adults with and without “different-ABILITIES.” Striving to create a community of equality for those who are deaf, hearing and physically or developmentally challenged in a non-competitive learning environment.



Program Statement

Through education, awareness-building, community service, workshops and performances, DDJW seeks to empower its members artistically, academically and culturally, and to strengthen the relationship between the “differently able” community and “conventionally able” community.
