Oct 10, 2018

Welcome to Dance Factory, where we are committed to promoting inclusive and accessible experiences in the world of performing arts. With our WaterFire Access Program, we aim to remove barriers and ensure that everyone can enjoy the beauty of dance, music, and theater. Your generous donation can make a significant impact on the lives of individuals with diverse abilities and help us create an inclusive society.

The Importance of the WaterFire Access Program

At Dance Factory, we believe that art should be accessible to all individuals, regardless of their physical or cognitive abilities. Our WaterFire Access Program focuses on creating an inclusive environment for people with disabilities, ensuring they can fully participate and engage in performing arts. Through this program, we provide unique opportunities for individuals to experience the transformative power of dance and theater.

Creating Inclusive Experiences

With your donation to the WaterFire Access Program, you directly contribute to the provision of accessible performances and workshops tailored to meet the diverse needs of our community. Our team of talented artists and educators works tirelessly to create inclusive experiences that break down barriers and foster a sense of belonging for everyone.

We offer sensory-friendly performances, sign language interpretation, audio description, and wheelchair-accessible seating to ensure that individuals with various disabilities can fully engage with our performances. By providing these accommodations, we aim to eliminate the barriers that often prevent individuals from enjoying the arts.

Supporting Education and Outreach

In addition to performances, Dance Factory's WaterFire Access Program also focuses on educational initiatives to enhance inclusivity in the performing arts. We collaborate with schools, community centers, and organizations to provide workshops and training on inclusive dance and theater practices. Through these outreach efforts, we aim to empower individuals with disabilities, cultivate their creativity, and encourage their artistic expression.

Your donation directly supports the development of these educational initiatives, enabling us to reach a broader audience and create lasting change in the community. Together, we can build a more inclusive and equal society where the performing arts are accessible to everyone.

How Your Donation Makes a Difference

By donating to the WaterFire Access Program, you fuel the growth and expansion of the program, enabling us to provide more accessible performances, workshops, and educational resources. Your contribution ensures that individuals with disabilities have equal opportunities to participate in the performing arts and enjoy the transformative power of creative expression.

Here are some ways your donation can make a difference:

1. Accessible Performances:

Your support allows us to offer sensory-friendly performances, creating a theater experience that is comfortable and enjoyable for individuals with sensory sensitivities. We provide quiet spaces, modified lighting, and adjusted sound levels to accommodate their needs, ensuring no one is left behind.

2. Sign Language Interpretation:

With your donation, we can provide sign language interpretation during performances, making the arts accessible to individuals who are deaf or hard of hearing. This ensures they can fully partake in the artistic expression and storytelling conveyed through movement and dialogue.

3. Audio Description:

We believe in making performances accessible to individuals with visual impairments. Your contribution enables us to offer audio description services, providing detailed narration of visual elements, costumes, and stage sets, allowing individuals to form a comprehensive understanding of the performance.

4. Wheelchair-Accessible Seating:

Your donation helps us provide wheelchair-accessible seating arrangements, ensuring that individuals with mobility limitations can comfortably enjoy our performances without any architectural barriers or constraints.

5. Inclusive Workshops:

Through your generous support, we can organize inclusive dance and theater workshops designed to share the joy of performing arts with individuals of all abilities. These workshops foster creativity, promote collaboration, and provide a safe space for artistic exploration.

6. Teacher Training:

Your donation supports the training of teachers and educators in inclusive dance and theater practices. We offer workshops and resources to equip them with the knowledge and tools necessary to create inclusive artistic experiences within their classrooms and communities.
