Next Dance Countdown

Our Events

United We Dance NWA hosts several inclusive community dances a year. Most dances are casual and encourages everyone to dress as they wish. Throughout the year we may have themed dances that incorporate special decorations, delicious drinks, and unique food menus.

Our last dance of the year is a Prom-themed event and we ask individuals to dress nicely, in whatever they have.

Community Inclusion is about creating opportunities for increased presence and participation in the community for all individuals. Community Inclusion demands that we encourage everyone to expect nothing less than that which individuals living without disability look forward to in their lives. It is with Community Inclusion in mind that we remove any barriers or obstacles that may prevent someone from feeling welcomed to our dance.

We are happy and honored to have the presence of the police at our dances. The Fayetteville Police Dept, as part of their community outreach, has partnered with UWD to provide an officer at the dances for our safety and building community relationships with our participants and the police. We wanted to help build relationships and connections so that individuals with developmental disabilities in our community could have a positive experience with law enforcement. We have a wonderful police force in Northwest Arkansas that embraces Community Policing and we value the opportunity to provide positive interactions with our dance participants.
