Classes in music and singing with longtime AFA teaching artists on the north and west sides of Madison


A two-year pilot adaptive dance program designed for individuals of all ages with disabilities. Our adaptive dance programming is born out of the insightful research conducted by Janel Hutchison at UW-Madison in 2022. We will address a crucial need identified through interviews with parents, caregivers, dance instructors, and disability-focused organizations that underscored a glaring absence of accessible dance opportunities in the Madison area for people with disabilities.

AFA is partnering with professional dance companies, universities, dance schools, and adaptive dance organizations to create inclusive dance classes, professional development opportunities, and social engagement events for diverse age groups and abilities.

Opportunities include free professional development workshops. More information can be found under Useful Links.

Masks will be provided. If you are experiencing cold or flu symptoms, please do not attend in-person programming. Many of AFA's programs offer virtual options.
