According to Henrique Amoedo (…) Dançando com a Diferença is in a process of great international recognition for the strong work it has done through Inclusive Dance.  This is the recognition of almost 20 years of work for the acknowledgement of the aesthetic and artistic quality of cast that include people with and without disabilities. Nowadays, these same casts share the stage with the most important names in contemporary dance.

We got where we wanted to, but that doesn't mean we'll stop. This is the beginning of a new process, of delineating a new vision and mission, this time we have the need to solidify the recognition of professional inclusive cast and Inclusive Dance within the spectrum of Contemporary Dance.

Making way for what comes next.
