True Colors DANCE was my first experience to have a dance battle with a team of dancers with disabilities. I felt an air of energy from the members of ILL-Abilities that was different from the usual battles I perform in. It’s difficult to put into words, but it’s probably their passion for dance that emitted this strong, unique energy.

The atmosphere of the audience was also interesting. The battle was held in an open space and not at a club, so there must have been those in the audience who saw a dance battle for their first time. I usually dance in places where “dancers” gather, so the way the audience cheered and the scenes where they get excited were quite different as well, and they felt warmer. It’s only natural that different crowd gets excited about different things, but it was a refreshing experience for me. I hope opportunities to share time with those whom I’m usually not involved with, and opportunities that we all get involved in the art through music and dance can increase and continue.
