Proposed Measurable Outcome(s)

Participants with disabilities who have been taking part in our programing will report that they can move into and through our space with greater ease. People with disabilities new to Young Dance will be able to move independently and/or with ease through our space. (For survey purposes, we will define the term "with ease". ). We will conduct surveys - online, paper, or spoken - with our participants who identify as people with disabilities. We will ask teaching artists and staff to report on their observations of people moving into and through our space. For survey purposes, we will define the term "with ease.".
