AXIS is lovely and amazing! I have done videography for them over the past 15 years - and I am still constantly astonished and awed by the beauty and emotional energy of their work. They're performances are innovative, inspiring and exciting.They teach. They dance. They move. They ARE moving. If you have the chance to see them, do so - they do not disappoint!

Axis dance is a triple "threat": world-class performance ensemble, empowering and mind-opening teachers in school assemblies and workshops, advocates for architectural accessibility for audiences and performers in theaters across the country. I first saw the company 15 years ago and was blown away. The interesting thing is that it's not a one-time revelation. The company shifts and changes as dancers come and go; it's a new lesson every time about capitalizing on the strengths one has to offer. And consistently the company touches something deep in each of us about vulnerability and trust, the human condition we all share. I housed a dancer, helped with performances and parties, served on the Board. It's a well-run organization doing amazing things. I feel lucky to be a part of it.

Did your volunteer experience have an effect on you? (teaching you a new skill, or introducing new friends, etc.)

Yes. I am more familiar and at ease with members of the disabled community. I also understand much better the many ways our environment still makes it difficult for physically challenged people to attend performances. We think of one or two wheelchairs, not 5 or 10 or 20. Come to an Axis performance and realize how hidden this population is because it's so difficult to be out and about...

How did this volunteer experience make you feel?

I was changed and I helped make a difference in the world.

I have been at AXIS for a month, am leaving in December and wish I could stay longer! The AXIS family are so welcoming to old and new friends and it is a privilege to be a part of their work this Fall. The company spend a lot of time engaging with the community including a wonderful event called Dance Access Day where around 800 community members young and not so young had the chance to see one of three free educational shows. The physically integrated dance company have no limitations when it comes to expanding the art of dance. The work is top quality and it is wonderful to see them touring across the country. To me AXIS are everything a non-profit should be- they give with graciousness and are creative, dynamic and fun!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

meeting 800 community members at Dance Access Day.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

incredibly friendly and patient.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

introduce an innovative world of dance to communities across the globe.

Without any doubt, one of the most exhilirating dance companies of the New Age;that is Axis. They represent compassion, unconditional love and infectious enthusiasm): They had me at: "We'd like to work with you and further develop your potential". Its all it took for me to trust them to build a connection within my mind,body & soul

My experience with Axis began earlier this year! They were having Open Auditions,for their Winter Program,LightShelter held at The New World School of The Arts. I auditioned twice and was selected to participate along with some 15 other able/disable bodies. What I walked away with was breathtaking! See in 2008, I suffered a tragic motorcycle accident as a result of a Hit & Run,in which I lost my R leg BK. Its been along road of recovery,yet with a prosthetic leg,rehabilitation with a trainer and a strong support group of friends & family. I realized there is nothing Stopping me, from living a fulfilled life with my new reality): Thru Axis, I have met others who strive to do the same with more or less..... My experience helped me Heal from within; as we had to trust in eachother,create dynamics through movement without vocalization. Make the most of space and energy regardless of your preconceived notions.
