LABO inclusive Dance Platform is a research project for inclusive dance practice (2015 – 2017) at the Royal Conservatoire of Antwerp. With the experience and support of the dance departement of AP university college and Dēmos, the knowledge centre on participation and democracy, the Platform organizes weekly classes on wednesday, dance workshops and activities for anyone who loves to dance, with and without (physical) disabilities.
Below a video giving an insight into an inclusive dance class with dancers from the first year Bachelor Dance and from outside the school (Mythil).
The LABO class was structured and divided into three blocks, all building up to research/figure out the main question off the class: ‘How can we find ways to enlarge the auditory imput for a visual impaired dancer?’ This in terms of giving them an extra tool to hear the movements and translate them into movement language.
To read about the build up and the main theme of the class: Class May 24, 2017
