Using the framework of Boston Ballet’s Adaptive Dance Program and Education and Community Initiatives, we will explore how the practices of Culturally Responsive Teaching and Universal Design intersect to create an inclusive dance experience. We will examine the definition of culture, and how each of us can examine our own cultural lens and build awareness of broader social contexts. We will then connect these strategies to universal design, and explore through program design and instruction how to provide multiple means of representation, expression, and engagement to all abilities and cultures.
