Experiencing the Democracy of Dance
In this episode of DanceCast, Silva interviews Connie Vandarakis, a master DanceAbility teacher in Philadelphia. Connie shares her unusual entrance to dance, her experience in academia, how chronic hip pain and a hip replacement led her to DanceAbility, and why she deeply believes in the curriculum of DanceAbility. Her drive to serve in the arts felt answered by DanceAbility’s mission and vision. She describes how the use of improvisation calls for everyone to be responsible in the moment, both in and out of the dance studio.
