Dancing with Community is a seven-part webinar series that digs deep into relationship building and community inclusion for people with disabilities. In each session, come along for a unique journey of support that focuses on stepping into the role of a community citizen, and out of the role of agency client. We’ll get to know and understand each aspect of the “dance,” from taking the first steps onto the stage of community, to finding the right dance partners and learning the moves!
This webinar series is intended for community support professionals and agencies interested in organizational change or finding innovative service approaches. Family members and groups of self-advocates will also find this content helpful in discovering what is possible in the community with the right supports. Anyone invested in the quality of life of people with disabilities will be informed and inspired by this series.
