No Limits – In-Person Performance

Luca offers a 60minute motivational entertainment program. He discusses to the students about how he overcame his own adversities through transforming negative situations in his life into positive ones. Luca focuses on the motto of “No Excuses, No Limits” encouraging the idea that we all have the power to accomplish anything we desire, by doing it in our own way. He also focuses on the importance of adapting ourselves to any situation and about how our creativity can help us face challenges differently. He also discusses about the importance of staying positive in difficult moments, and the power of believing in ourselves.

Luca’s programs are interactive, dynamic, full of emotion, and educational for all different audiences to enjoy.

He performs dance segments throughout the program and invites the audience to participate in some dance routines with him.

Everyone Can Dance – In-Person Workshop

Choreography is something Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli views as a living organism – an entity that is constantly changing, evolving and breathing. This philosophy helps him to capitalize on the value each particular dancer brings to the piece. He understands that different body types and ability levels interpret movements slightly differently. Rather than making imitation of movements the goal, Luca works with dancers to push their boundaries and explore various possibilities which, in turn, allows for unique and emotional connections within the choreographies. This appreciation for the unique characteristics each person brings to the table is what makes Luca’s approach to the creative process so effective. Considering not only music choices and theatrical elements but also the welfare and energy of each dancer, he strives to create original concepts and themes brought to life by dancers that best fit the occasion. Fuelled by his belief that we all learn from one another, Luca’s process is highly focused on valuing the collaborative effort between him and the dancers he choreographs.

About Luca Patuelli

Luca Patuelli also known as Lazylegz started dancing (B-boying) at the age of fifteen. His unique approach to dance is how he achieved worldwide recognition; he developed his personalised dance style by incorporating his incredible upper body strength and his crutches as accessories to his performance. His passion for dance has led him to be featured on the Ellen show, So You Think You Can Dance Canada, America’s Got Talent amongst many others. He was also the segment director and lead performer for the 2010 Vancouver Paralympics Opening Ceremonies.

Luca is the creator and founder of the ILL-Abilities™ Crew, an international B-boy crew composed of the world’s best “ILL-Abled” dancers. He has also co-founded Projet RAD which was Canada’s first inclusive urban dance program offering people of all ages and all abilities the possibility to participate in accessible dance studios. Luca has also been recognized as the Canadian Ambassador for Dance and received a Meritorious Service Medal from the Governor General of Canada for his dance outreach programs. Luca can speak four languages (English, French, Italian, and Spanish) which enables him to teach and share his passion for dance to people of all ages and all abilities internationally.

Luca is currently planning on combining what he has learned with ILL-Abilities and Projet RAD to take his career to the next level while constantly sharing his message to the world “It’s about taking the bad and making it good” and there are “No Excuses, No Limits!”
