Though we are all human beings and share common human experiences and emotions, we are all infinitely unique: different DNA, backgrounds, experiences, perspectives, identities, tastes, looks, interests, etc. And though we are each unique, we all have a need to be included, and deep down we all have a strong desire to include others. However, even in a diverse country like the USA, there is still much exclusion and discrimination, and we oftentimes see inclusion advocacy practiced through bitterness and violence.
#DanceForInclusion (initiated as #InfiniteInclusion in Nov 2016 and renamed #DanceForInclusion) is a social movement lead by Infinite Flow - A Wheelchair Dance Company to mass market inclusion through dance and innovation, creating infinite opportunities. #DanceForInclusion refers to inclusion in a broad sense. It’s not only a movement advocating for people with disabilities, but also about advocating for other minorities groups (different ethnic & religious groups, LGBTQ, etc), as well as simply including someone at the lunch table or in a conversation at a party. It’s about breaking down barriers everywhere: at work, school, media, entertainment, pop culture, politics, literature, beauty, employment, travel, architecture, transportation, city development, etc.
