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 through dance, human connection, and inclusion. 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 50+ 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.
