Happy Feat Inc provides a very caring, supportive, encouraging and fun environment for people with special needs and 'differing' abilities. It's a place where these incredible individuals can truly shine and show how extraordinary they are.They can just forget their disability because we highlight their 'ability' instead.
This amazing dance group has members with various challenges ranging from Acquired Brain Injury, Fagile X, Down Syndrome, Autism, Asperger's and hearing impairments. And yet, when there are no limits placed on them, they can accomplish startling results.
The dancers are aged between 16 and 65 years young! Their love of dance, music and simply their love of life is truly contagious.
The name 'Happy FEAT Inc' is because we believe it's a real 'feat' every time the Happy Featers dance and perform.
By bringing Happy Feat Inc to Townsville and North Queensland, we are hoping to help break down the barriers, gain acceptance and inclusion for our Happy Featers and give them experiences they've never had in all their lives.
