We’re looking for enthusiastic low-vision and blind dance and theatre lovers to help us spread the love of inclusive performances. ShaLeigh Dance Works is developing an immersive dance-theatre performance that does not require the viewer’s sight, but rather all their other senses. We are seeking low-vision and blind participants who would be interested in joining our creative process this February and March 2022. No dance experience is necessary and all levels of abilities are welcome. This project is led by Artistic Director ShaLeigh Comerford in collaboration with Co-Director Davian Robinson, a low vision dancer and choreographer. 

To get involved, send us a message here:

If you know anyone that could be interested, please feel free to share! 

We are grateful to our invaluable community partners Arts Access, Vision InSights, Dark Room Ballet, InSightful Visionaries, The American Dance Festival, and The Fruit. 

This project is supported by MAP Fund, the Mary Duke Biddle Foundation, the Durham Arts Council’s Annual Arts Fund and the North Carolina Arts Council, a division of the Department of Natural and Cultural Resources.
