AXIS Dance Company has become one of the world’s most acclaimed and innovative ensembles of performers with and without disabilities. Founded in 1987, they have paved the way for a powerful contemporary dance form called physically integrated dance. In 1997 Judith Smith led the company to new heights. Under her artistic direction, AXIS expanded from in-house choreographers to various commissions from outside the company.

Since then, their performances have won numerous awards and the Company has toured extensively throughout the U.S. and abroad. AXIS also dramatically expanded its education and outreach programs creating Dance Access for Adults and Dance Access/KIDS!

Today, AXIS collaborates with world-class choreographers and composers to create completely new and innovative performances. Acclaimed by critics around the world, AXIS is the recipient of multiple awards and honors.

Their Dance Access for Adults and Dance Access/KIDS! programs provide dance classes for adults, educators, and students of all abilities and socioeconomic backgrounds.

Through the outreach programs AXIS brings physically integrated dance outside the studio and into schools, community centers, independent living centers, and to countless organizations seeking to learn more about dance, disability and collaboration.
