I've been meaning to blog this up for awhile, but here it is. Seattle-based Lindy Hopper Cheryl Crow shares this inspiring video about her own experiences as a dancer with rheumatoid arthritis.
I have several uncles and aunties who have trouble walking down the street because of various pains and disabilities. But when the music of their era comes on, they hit the dancefloor like nobody's business! If you can take a step, if you can bob your head to the beat, if you can snap your fingers, you can dance.
There's a forum topic on yehoodi where people are posting their experiences dancing through various disabilities. Check it out for some more stories of how people cope with pain and the stress of dancing.
Thanks so sharing your story, Cheryl! I hope we get to dance soon!
