The mission of Full Radius Dance is to promote, advance, and enhance the modern dance form for persons with disabilities, for dance artists, and the general community. We provide opportunities for children and adults with and without disabilities to experience a greater awareness of their artistic potential through dance, and our programs help to foster acceptance, understanding, and inclusion of persons with disabilities in the performing arts.
Full Radius Dance is a modern dance company that presents mature, choreographically complex works celebrating technique and physicality. Our focus is on skill and artistry; that some of the dancers use wheelchairs is secondary. The wheelchair may lend additional movement possibilities to the choreography, but is not the focal point of the work. Founded in 1990, Full Radius Dance, originally known as Dance Force, Inc. is one of only a handful of physically-integrated dance companies in the United States.
