Hi guys,

My name is Freya and I am a final year dance student based in London. For my dissertation I am researching the accessibility of dance to people with visual impairments.
I wondered if I could have some thoughts from people on anything they have experienced and how they feel about taking part in dance?
Also with being an audience member?
Do you find that these things are readily available to you?
Would you want to take part in them if they were?

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Freya
