AXIS Dance Company was in residence for one week in April 2010 at Montgomery County Community College (MCCC), conducting workshops and developing a community participation piece with choreographer David Dorfman. AXIS is regarded for paving the way for physically integrated dance within the contemporary dance community. Under the artistic direction of Judith Smith, the company of seven dancers, with and without disabilities, has performed in theaters and dance spaces at its home base in the Bay Area, on tour throughout the United States, and internationally. Their performance at MCCC marked the 20th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act. The company also presented a full evening of work as part of the Lively Arts performance series.
