Regional Dance Company of the Week: Infinity Dance Theater

by BWW News Desk
BroadwayWorld.com, the largest theatre site on the Internet, is thrilled to announce a new feature to its comprehensive regional coverage - the Featured Regional Dance Company of the Week! Much like we do with our featured Regional Theaters, each week, we will bring you a story on a regional dance company in one of our coverage cities.
Infinity Dance Theater is a non-traditional dance company committed to expanding the boundaries of dance by featuring dancers with and without disabilities.
Under the leadership of Artistic Director Kitty Lunn, who founded the organization in 1995, Infinity achieves parity in the world of dance while maintaining high standards of artistic quality. The company aims to inspire people with and without disabilities, encourage their artistic and other professional aspirations, and empower them through the organization's educational and performance programs.
Infinity's Teacher Training programs are designed to give educators hands-on, step-by-step instruction in the transposition technique she has developed for dancers with disabilities. This program teaches dance educators how to transpose the same ballet, modern, or jazz dance technique they are already teaching, thus encouraging the inclusion of students using wheelchairs into regular dance classes and performances.
Infinity Dance Theater's ensemble performs throughout the New York City metropolitan area and New York State, across the country, and around the world.
Upcoming performances include ELEMENTS on November 15 thru 17 and THE WOMEN'S STORIES PROJECT on November 17 and November 18 at the Judson Memorial Church in New York. For tickets and more information, visit http://www.infinitydance.com/index.html
