Dancing together with CF

 Purple circle with the words "Dancing Together with CF."


Dancing Together with CF is a virtual dance class designed for people living with Cystic Fibrosis and their community including friends and family.  Adaptive assistants are available for weekly classes and may be requested for additional classes. No prior dance experience necessary. All ages welcome. After dancing, it's time for social connectivity with other members of the CF community. Let's Dance Together!

Headshot of Amanda Killen, inspiration for Dancing Together with CF

Inspiration: Amanda Killen

This program was inspired by Amanda, dancer and choreographer living in Kansas City, Missouri. Suzanne Ryanstrati said, "Amanda was a former dance student. Her passion for dance radiates in the classroom and on stage.  When she told me about her experience with CF and that people with CF could not take dance together I wanted to find a way to make that happen."
