Dance Force, Inc. DBA Full Radius Dance promotes, advances, and enhances modern dance by exploring the sweep of the human experience through physically integrated (persons with and without disabilities) dance. Full Radius Dance believes: • Your body is perfect; • Your body has undiscovered movement; and • Your body should experience dance.
Founded in 1990 by Artistic/Executive Director Douglas Scott, the organization was originally known as Dance Force. The company began as a traditional dance company - all members were professional dancers without disabilities. In 1993 through a partnership with VSA arts of GA, Shepherd Center, and Special Audiences, Douglas began teaching dance classes for persons with physical disabilities. Two years later, he began incorporating dancers with disabilities into the company's performances. In 1998, Dance Force was re-branded as Full Radius Dance. The company continues to be the only professional physically integrated dance company in the state of Georgia.
Full Radius Dance maintains a busy schedule in Atlanta with performances such as Art on the Beltline, workshops such as the Summer Training Intensive, and by supporting the dance community through the presentation of the Modern Atlanta Dance (MAD) Festival. The company also has a deep commitment to education and outreach and brings a unique artistic experience to schools, senior citizen centers, and disability groups on a regular basis.
