Join the Dance! focused on Minnesotans with physical disabilities. Clients of the Courage Center—Minnesota's largest provider of rehabilitation services to people with disabilities—were paired with Chorale singers in the creation and performance of choreographed works, set to music sung by the Chorale.

Under the direction of Chorale artistic director Kathy Saltzman Romey, the performances featured the premiere of a new work by composer Mary Ellen Childs, commissioned for this program.

Dancers from the Dance Exchange of Takoma Park, Md., led singers and dancers in the creation of these works, using the Dance Exchange’s nationally acclaimed methods in developing community-based art. Founded in 1976 by choreographer Liz Lerman, the Dance Exchange has extended the frontiers of dance, specializing in community residencies that explore significant social and personal issues through dance.
