A Philosophy of Inclusion
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews Olivia O’Hare and Veronica DeWitt, her colleagues at Body
Shift in Austin, TX. They each share their entry points into improvisational dance and DanceAbility in
particular, as well as discuss the strengths of DanceAbility, its philosophy of inclusion, and how Body
Shift was built on that foundation. They also share how they’ve applied the methodology to other areas
of their practice like theater and fitness.
