As part of MDI’s Leap Festival Lisa Simpson Inclusive Dance Ltd offered a workshop for choreographers and translators; to learn how to use a Simpson Board and work effectively to be able to create dance. Choreographers were tutored on how to create dance alongside a team of teachers and other like-minded people. Translators were taught how to support disabled artists and use a variety of communication methods.

This workshop also benefited dance lecturers, professional dancers, dance students and other individuals as it demonstrated the Simpson Board, an inexpensive, priceless tool that enables disabled people with non/limited verbal communication to choreograph.
