I have been involved in dance, movement, and therapy for many years and since the beginning I have moved with people of all ages and shapes and abilities. It is rare that I move/dance with what many people think of as a “typical dancer”. One of the most amazing dance experiences I ever had was in Philadelphia co-creating choreography with a group of kids, adults, and elders. We spent a week working together, some in wheel chairs, some sighted, some could hear, all had a heart of acceptance, respect, and desire to work together.
