I discovered movements that I didn’t know I had in me
Wheelchair Dancer / True Colors DANCE participant
By dancing in the workshop, I discovered movements that I didn’t know I had in me. I have a disability called Spina bifida which requires a wheelchair for everyday life. So, my forte in dancing is using my upper body to its fullest, like doing handstands on the wheelchair. But in the workshop, I was able to use my back even more flexibly and developed a sliding movement like rolling backward. I haven’t used my back much before, so it was exciting to see the possibility of my movements broaden. I’m sure there will be many more talented performers in True Colors Festival. It’s such a great opportunity, I hope a diversity of people would see our out-of-the-box performances.
