See & Be Seen exposes young audiences to diversity, difference and the power of the moving body. This show engages viewers in activities, demonstrations and conversation that will leave them considering inclusion in a whole new way. It is performed by a cast of dancers with and without disabilities including wheelchair users alongside "standing dancers." This inspiring performance challenges the idea of the "normal body," and addresses themes of communication, diversity and connection. All Bodies Dance Project is also available to lead workshops focused on getting students moving, creating and expressing themselves through their own unique movement language.
