Don’t miss ILL-ABILITIES performing in Cleveleys this July!

ia Published Tuesday, 02 July 2019

Taking place at Cleveleys Plaza on Saturday 13 July between 12pm-2pm you will not want to miss this exciting opportunity. The international differently abled all- star dance team will be performing two 60 minute interactive performances and a workshop! A great family day out especially for dance lovers!

If you’ve not got the chance to see this inspirational dance crew at the ticketed Kylie Minogue concert at Lytham Festival don’t miss your chance to see them the day after free of charge on the Plaza in Cleveleys!

Created in the summer of 2007 by Montreal-based dancer/motivational speaker Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli, ILL-ABILITIES™ was an all-star team of differently-abled dancers whose goal was to compete in the breakdance competition circuit, showing the world that anything is possible.

The crew gets its name from the standard in hip-hop culture of using a negative term to refer to something positive. Examples of this can be heard in studios or at competitions where dancers complement each other by saying they were bad, nasty or mean. The “ill” in ILL-ABILITIES™ does not refer to “sick” or “unwell” but rather to incredible, amazing, intricate, talent. Rather than seeing the negative limitations of “disability”, this crew focuses on their positive, or “ill”, abilities.

Once they started performing together, the dancers of ILL-ABILITIES™ quickly realized their potential to inspire audience members with their positive attitudes and unique dance moves so they expanded their goal.

Councillor Lynne Bowen portfolio holder for Leisure, Health and Community Engagement at Wyre Council comments: “this is an exciting project that gives the local community a chance to see this inspiring international dance crew on the sea front at no cost. Audience members will be blown away by their unique dance moves with no limitations.”

Today, ILL-ABILITIES™ spreads positive thinking by sharing their stories with motivational entertainment programs and theatrical dance performances worldwide.

Wyre Council is proudly working in partnership with Access Fylde Coast made possible with the financial support of the Coastal Communities Fund.
