Art as Action
who it is for and the joy, healing and abandon it brings
designing in-person and virtual spaces where everyone gets a gold star just for showing up.
RECONNECT with your Body
our philosophy of agency, compassion and belonging
Art as Action is a physically integrative dance company that is redefining what it means to be a DANCER by embodying the following values: it is possible to honor your own body’s needs/limitations AND experience the expansiveness of dance; the beauty, healing, and storytelling powers of dance are attainable for everybody; and creativity is a human right.
Art as Action, and its flagship program Reconnect with your Body, centers people with (dis)ability and chronic illness, specifically Parkinson’s Disease.
Art as Action creates spaces where participants feel considered and supported from the moment they arrive. These spaces are physically/emotionally safe and comfortable, allowing our dancers the freedom to surrender to the flow of dancing instead of having to focus on having their needs met.
Dancers have the agency to modify choreography to feel good in their bodies, instead of conforming to specific shapes and movements, which is also an opportunity for innovation and creativity.
Art as Action is collaborative at every level – the majority of our board of directors is people with Parkinson’s, ensuring that a diversity of voices is integrated into organizational decisions.
Art as Action’s home base is Colorado Conservatory of Dance in Broomfield for classes, rehearsals, performances and office space.
All bodies, ages and abilities are welcome at our Reconnect with your Body classes: On Zoom Mondays and Fridays 12-1pm and In-Person Wednesdays 12-1pm.
