Our Mission

Joint Forces Dance Company’s mission is to encourage the evolution of contemporary dance and provide ways for people to connect through dance. This mission is accomplished through the work of DanceAbility International, contact improvisation workshops and events, and performances.

The work of JFDC creates inclusive communities through dance.

“I believe that DanceAbility® goes beyond movement exploration and is, for many people their first opportunity to define themselves in their own terms and see that this dance form, like their lives, has many options and possibilities.”

~Susan Sygall,

Executive Director,
