I discovered that, perhaps I could dance in my wheelchair. And met a friend, Alana, who also has a disability and wanted to dance. We started taking class together, and then she had a fledgling dance company, I joined her company, and it sort of went on from there. Prior to my injury, I had been a choreographer, a performer and a teacher for many years. So, I was thrilled that I would be able to get into it. It’s not the same; I don’t pretend that it, that it is the same as being a stand-up dancer. Nevertheless, it allows me the creativity, the freedom of movement, the experience of moving in time and space, and to music, and to choreograph. So I can create, and I continue to do that.
