Today we have Minda Mae joining us from Minneapolis! She is the founder of the DisabiliTease Academy, the first virtual school specifically geared towards performers with disabilites and their allies. She’s also the first wheelchair-using burlesque performer in Minnesota.
Through her work she helps students advocate for themselves and teachers show up more inclusively for their students.
Here in our mini episode she’ll go through some of the basics, what is a disability? Accessibiilty? Accomodations?
She’ll also share a couple of simple things you can do right now to make your marketing and your studios to create a safer space for dancers with disabilities.
