The Symbiotic Dance Troupe of the Centre for Community Cultural Development

The Symbiotic Dance Troupe was established by the Centre for Community Cultural Development in 2009 and founded on the belief that ‘Everyone can dance’. Symbiotic dance is based on DanceAbility developed by Alito Alessi (a combination of Dan Baron Cohen’s Transformance and Nancy Stark Smith’s Underscore), and merges elements of inclusive and creative dance to enable people of different abilities to discover their potential. The Symbiotic Dance Troupe consists of a mix of professional dancers and dancers facing various challenges (visual, hearing, physical, learning), who collaborate with individuals of different abilities to create beautiful pieces of performance art.
