Access For All, a student organization that focusses on disability awareness, envisions a world — or at least a dance floor — where both the able and the disabled dance.
On Friday, Mar. 31, Access For All is hosting an All Abilities Dance in the Kirby Ballroom from 7 to 10 p.m. at the University of Minnesota Duluth.
“This will be our second annual all abilities dance,” Tiffany Cowan, Access For All leader, said.
The under the sea themed event is free for people of all ages. There will be food, games and prizes.
According to Cowan, guests can expect to see lots of blues and greens.
“We are kind of going off of The Little Mermaid theme,” she said.
No need to dress up though, Cowan assured.
“Guests can dress however they please. Last year, we had people come dressed in normal every day attire, as well as people in beautiful dress. It is all up to the guest and what they feel comfortable wearing,” Cowan said.
Access For All is hoping for a good turn out.
“Last year, there were around 100 people at the event,” Cowan said.
She is excited for the opportunity to bring people together.
“No matter what someone looks like or acts like, we are all the same creative people on the inside. This night is for everyone to get together and just have a blast with all different people from all different walks of life,” Cowan said.
