A New Definition of Dance

A group of renowned disabled and able-bodied dancers from around the world gathered at USF recently for an event called “A New Definition of Dance.” Over four days, they conducted workshops with students at USF and in Hillsborough County Schools, as well as performed at a gala concert. We tell you how you don’t need fancy footwork to be a great dancer on University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
