About DanceAbility Hong Kong
"DanceAbility Hong Kong"* was established in May 2016. We are committed to promote improvisational dance through which people of different ages and abilities are encouraged to explore and express themselves in this kind of art form. Since our official opening, various dance activities have been actively promoted, including: monthly dance classes, outreach programmes, workshops and performances with different organisations. All these events help promote our mission and provide opportunities for the public to experience improvisational dance. While enjoying the dance, we can also learn from the diversities and break the barrier between each other.
Through improvisation as a medium, we let everyone know themselves from the perspective of using the body, and improve their ability to express themselves and personal growth. Impromptu dance focuses on exploring new possibilities. Unlike the concept of traditional dance, we don't need a unified standard, but we can pursue everyone's continuous growth in the personal field and find wider possibilities. At the same time, through communication in impromptu dance, to explore more bridges between people, so that they can know each other better.
We hope that the public will be interested in performing arts through participation and break the inherent impression that dance is out of reach. Through physical interaction, we can communicate with each other. Whether it is a dancer with professional dance training or a public of different ages or physical abilities, they can participate and enjoy dancing at the same time in order to break the boundaries of existing concepts. All artists who want to develop related to improvisation, have a wider platform for mutual communication and connect with the world.
What is our dance aesthetic?
We value the personal uniqueness! Each different body has its own learning process and can continue to grow, even pursuing wider possibilities.
Getting along with our body is a lifetime thing! It is both the most basic and the most important practice. Through constant practice, not only understand the body and accumulate physical experience, but also be aware of our habits or restrictions, so as to open up our new potential. Start with the internal experience, and expand to communicate with others, and explore to build more connecting bridges between people. Knowing each other and breaking the barrier.
We believe in working with all people who want to dance.
