Abstract

The article aims to understand the role played by dance in the lives of people with disabilities, reflecting on how dance can be an element of personal and social transformation. A review of the literature with emphasis on dance, disability, and their relationships, and the interpretative analysis based on the works of Le Breton. The disabled body occupying spaces previously dominated by the ideal body, leads the spectators to dialogue / confront the history of this body with its own stories, values and (pre) concepts. It is concluded that dance can be an element of personal and social transformation by opportunizing experiences / reflections on the acceptance of different bodies and expressions, without disqualifying or disparaging any kind of diversity.
