Our ambition is to develop a more diverse and accessible dance scene in The Netherlands, including creating equal opportunities for talented disabled artists. EBA is a possibility to develop further our dance & disability program called DanceAble, the only major dance project for people with a disability in The Netherlands. Working in an international context brings us knowledge and artistic possibilities, stimulating development.
