Joint Forces Dance Company is a Eugene-based non-profit organization. We are active world-wide. We welcome student involvement for your course assignments, as interns, for practicum projects, or as volunteers. We are committed to our student assistants and are willing to take time to share our knowledge to increase your learning. Our flagship program is DanceAbility International. DanceAbility International celebrates the beauty of human diversity by bringing people with and without disabilities together, through dance. The DanceAbilityTM method is taught, studied, and practiced in over twenty countries for its contributions to the evolution of contemporary dance and its applications in recreation and arts settings to foster and celebrate diversity. Major programs are teacher trainings, performances, workshops, and youth outreach. Our Artistic Director is a Guggenheim Fellow, Fulbright Senior Fellow, Ashoka Fellow, and official U.S. State Department “Arts Envoy.” You can see more at
