Directed by Rosanne Stuart, Embrace features five artists from InsideOutside Dance, International Model and dancer Madeline Stuart, five-time Australian and one-time world champion dancer Denzel Van Uitregt, Kala, Anthony and Jess. All students have varying disabilities including, ASD, Turner syndrome, intellectual disability, Down syndrome or are legally blind.

The production follows the journey of these five individuals as they navigate the difficult challenges that people with disabilities are faced with in the real world, you will be laughing, crying, uplifted, and motivated for change by the end of the show!

Relive your youth as you follow their journey through high school and graduation, only to fall into an understanding of loneliness and isolation. Celebrate a spark of hope that is only a small step of courage away and embrace the glistening lights of what the future has to hold.

The hilarious and thought-provoking script has been paired with outstanding choreography from choreographers Nick Maguire and Shane Dechavez.

InsideOutside Dance is a leading Australian NDIS registered dance school for people with disabilities. It was founded seven years ago by Australian international model Madeline Stuart and her mother Rosanne Stuart to provide a platform for artists/dancers with disabilities who love dance and performing on the stage.

Madeline took the world by storm by being the first international supermodel with Down syndrome and ASD, after she became internationally known she wanted to give back to her community so opened the dance company to provide people with disabilities the same dance opportunities as everyone else, something that has been significantly lacking in society for a long time.
