Online Searchable Disability Resources Database by Region

For NADC to create an online searchable disability resources database perhaps by geographical region. For example, as part of a proposed theater project involving high school, college, and possibly home-schooled students, I’d like to know all of the schools and programs that service students with special needs and disabilities in the San Francisco Bay Area. I would find such a database very helpful.

Opportunities available for Artists with disablities

Dialogue implies 2 way communication. I have an idea, how about getting this information out into the community? This site is too wordy and confusing too. Leaderboard points? WTF? Looks like the usual Government funding using the funds to pay for a study that does little to benefit disabled Artists.

Creating welcoming spaces

ADA requirements do not necessarily provide guidelines for creating inclusive, welcoming spaces that allow disabled people to thrive. In dance, there may be programs and venues may be accessible to audiences, but there are often serious barriers to disabled artists who are performing.

What are some resources available for artists to find accessible dance spaces? And how can we create more of them to increase opportunities,... more »

Folk Dancing on stage led by a guide

As a visually impaired person, I love to dance especially Israeli folk dancing.. Need someone who knows the steps and can guide a person like me as well. Most of the people who dance, cannot describe the steps while dancing. They also use the wrong language. Rather than use the name of the step, they say one, two three.
