Dançando com a Diferença emerged as a pilot project in 2001 in the Autonomous Region of Madeira. It was intended to implement Inclusive Dance activities, which did not exist in Madeira at that time and years later it was established as a professional company that currently has several objectives, including the possibility of bringing together people with and without disabilities on stage for an only cause: Dancing.
Under the Artistic Direction of Henrique Amoedo, in more than 15 years of activity, it has become a national and international reference within contemporary arts, occupying a reference level within the European artistic scene when we talk about Inclusive Art.
Its mission is to promote Social and Cultural Inclusion through Inclusive Dance. Its vision is to modify the social image of people with disabilities and conquer spaces for human diversity in the professional universe of Contemporary Arts. Its values are to develop the creative, productive potential and professional development of inclusive groups; to encourage teamwork and the evolution of societies towards the enhancement of capacities and non-discrimination of people with disabilities, with their inclusion in the most varied social sectors.
