Demo performance by AXIS At Ganei Aviv Community Center, Lod.AXIS Dance Company Changes the Face of Dance and Disability. Pioneering a new dimension of dance – a revolutionary collaboration between dancers with and without disabilities.  The U.S. Embassy in Israel initiated a program on the integration of people with disabilities in dance, featuring the celebrated American AXIS Dance Company. The Company integrates professional dancers with and without disabilities, creates beautiful art, and works with communities to promote integration and break stereotypes about disabilities. In Israel AXIS gave workshops, master classes, and lecture demonstrations throughout the country to mixed audiences of adults, youth, and educators from all abilities, ethnic, and socio-economic backgrounds. The program was warmly embraced by local communities and attracted considerable press interest.
