There was a session at Neffa a few years ago, about doing dances that did not require actual dancing. This was for wheelchair bound and other disabled people. Involved a lot of hand motions, clapping and such. I forget who gave the session, but you may be able to look it up if you attended and/or have your program from then. Maybe it was 3 years or so ago? Maybe someone else on the list remembers the session??

I'm calling a couple of community dances this summer for a non-profit that mentors adult artists with varying developmental disabilities. A high proportion of the dancers will be their clients, or other similarly-disabled clients of their parent organization. The mentors and other agency staff will be on hand to dance as well. We're all very excited that this is happening, and I want to be sure it's a successful experience for the dancers, especially those with disabilities.
Has anyone on this list done anything similar? If so, do you have any specific suggestions as I prepare? (On or off-list. Content or approach.)
