Founded in 1987, AXIS Dance Company is the nation’s most acclaimed ensemble of disabled and non-disabled performers. Founding Artistic Director Thais Mazur originally gathered a group of dancers with and without physical disabilities to explore dance.
Now in its 30th year, AXIS has toured over 100 cities in the USA, Europe, and Russia. The Company has received seven Isadora Duncan Dance awards and has appeared twice on FOX TV’s So You Think You Can Dance.
Alongside their artistic performance program, the Company provides unparalleled integrated dance education and outreach programs. From recreational to professional training, AXIS builds access to dance education for people of all ages with and without disabilities.
