Who We Are
We believe each person has a dancer inside, and should have access to quality dance instruction. We break barriers socially and artistically, and we know that inclusion creates a better future. We create an environment where each person can thrive and make a difference.
Infinite Flow is a nonprofit organization founded in Los Angeles in March 2015 with the mission to empower people to #BeINFINITE through dance & human connection. We just happen to be America's first professional wheelchair ballroom dance company as well.
We are dedicated to
- Increasing access to quality dance instruction for people with disabilities in inclusive environments;
- Building a world-class professional dance company, which includes dancers of all abilities as a vehicle to break stereotypes and perceived barriers; and
- Creatively leading a social movement for inclusion through dance and innovation.
Since our beginning, we have performed at 60+ events, instructed 200+ wheelchair users through 150+ workshops, weekly dance classes, and community outreach events, and have been recognized locally and nationally in 60+ media and press outlets such as NBC’s Today Show, NowThis, Refinery29, GOOD Magazine, Broadway World, Dance Spirit Magazine, ABC Robin Roberts N’Courage Blog, LA Parent Magazine, ABC-7 News, Fox-11 News, and many MORE. On Facebook alone, our videos have been viewed 20 Million+ times.
Infinite Flow was founded by Marisa Hamamoto, a professional ballroom dancer who was temporarily paralyzed from the neck down with a rare stroke called spinal cord infarction in 2006.
