You’re a prisoner in your own body. You’re a thick-folder patient, a “problem patient.” Doctors judge you or even ridicule you. They tell you the pain is all in your head. If you’re lucky, they prescribe you pharmaceuticals with dangerous side effects or recommend surgery with iffy outcomes. You’re going from bad to worse in the healthcare system, and you feel helpless. Meanwhile, your life is falling apart at the seams. Physical disability has led to fatigue, weight gain, depression, a loss of income, a non-existant social circle, chronic uncertainty and instability, maybe even thoughts of suicide. You feel as if you’re running through a maze, desperately searching for the exit, but never able to find it.
I know, because from 1997-2005, I was you – bedridden, housebound, wheelchair-bound, desperate. Then I discovered that by reconceptualizing dance as more than leaps, twirls, and fancy footwork, I could use it to heal myself. So I did just that, then turned around and helped others do the same. Now I’m here to help you.
