I have had the great privledge in working with Seamless Dance Theater this past spring. I have been a principle dancer with both Giordano Jazz Dance Chicago and PHILADANCO and working with SDT is right up there. The work ethic, choreography, dedication and professionalism from both the company members and staff has made this company grow and exceed expectations leaps and bounds in its short time growing. I know first hand of versitility that both the dancers and choreography have and audiences have expressed their great appreciation for the diversity this company brings to the stage. In a day where dance has been more prominate in the media than ever, I can only hope that Seamless takes flight and is able reach audiences everywhere as well.

For the past two years Seamless has supported the development of a program to provide a dance class for children with special needs. As a faculty member in the Occupational Therapy Education Department at the University of Kansas we developed a collaboration with seamless in an effort to give children with special needs access to dance regardless of their disability. Occupational therapy graduate students assist with the class each week to provide extra support to the students that need extra assistance. We have children with a variety of physical, cognitive and behavioral challenges that come together each week to enjoy dance. Erin Lustig the director of Seamless connected us with Tarrah Bossert a dance instructor that has volunteered her time with assistance from Lucy Elbel a dance student at Starstruck Performing Arts Center. Seamless has provided studio space to us free of charge and has provided ongoing support with costumes and connecting us with children in the community that want the opportunity to dance. With donations from the community we are able to provide dance classes and costumes at no cost to the students. I have been an occupational therapist for 25 years and this dance class has been the most enjoyable experience of my career. Watching the enjoyment and the accomplishments of these children each week has been remarkable. This class would not have been possible without the support of Seamless Dance Theatre

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

The support they have provided to make this dance class possible. Their support has also facilitated interactions with the kids from the dance studio where the kids have their class.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Continue to expand opportunities to create additional dance classes in the community.
