Shared Ability

outreach header Shared Ability

In February of 2009, New Haven Ballet began a shared ability choreography project for differently abled children ages 10-21 years and student dancers from New Haven Ballet. To facilitate the project, New Haven Ballet has collaborated with highly experienced movement specialists, such as Brad Roth and Dancing Day, Inc., a non-profit organization based in Milford, Connecticut, whose mission is to promote shared ability workshops and performances, and Kerry Kincy, a teaching artist who creates residencies that explore movement and dance as a tool in building self concept, social and cognitive abilities.

The goals of the program include increasing New Haven Ballet’s accessibility, creating an opportunity for New Haven Ballet dancers and differently abled young people to meet, interact, and share their different experiences and skills, and fulfilling New Haven Ballet’s mission to provide the highest quality dance education to the various members of our community.
