“As long as our hearts are beating a rhythm is being created, everyone can dance! No Excuses, No Limits!” – Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli
Projet RAD is an organization providing people with special needs an opportunity to take inclusive urban dance classes in a progressive and reliable atmosphere tailored to the needs of each student. Guided by certified dance instructors, our students experience the joy of dancing with a group and the opportunity to shine on stage like a superstar! All should have the opportunity to discover a method to pursue a passion in their own way. We believe that everyone can reach their full potential and can accomplish their goals, regardless of ability.
AUMI (Adaptive Use Musical Instrument), originally conceived and designed by Pauline Oliveros and Leaf Miller, allows individuals with limited motor control to make music, thereby opening up to them new opportunities for creativity and community. The AUMI-Mackay Center School project is the result of a partnership between the school and IICSI (International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation). AUMI is a computer software system which uses motion tracking, and a simple interface, to transform bodily movements, into music. Envisaged as a tool for facilitating creativity, collective improvisation and community building, AUMI affords those with little motor control the opportunity to manifest their creativity.
Presenters include Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli and team, Patrizia Ciccarelli- English Montreal School Board-MACKAY CENTRE SCHOOL – PHILIP E. LAYTON SCHOOL, Eric Lewis, Affiliation, Dept. of Philosophy, McGill University and Keiko Shikako-Thomas, School of Physical and Occupational Therapy, McGill University.
