Review for Axis Dance Company, Oakland, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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

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

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.
