The words are in my head forever
“The words are in my head forever. “I’m really sorry but we’re going to have to amputate your leg, it’s not healing.” What followed is a blur, it seems that the human body has the capability of protecting you from the worst moments, fading the edges so it’s not as sharp a cut as it should be.”
“My first thought was dance. My one love, gone forever. Because without legs I couldn’t dance. No way.”
“Until one day I found Candoco while looking for disabled dance online and a glimmer of hope re-opened. They were a professional dance company made up of disabled and non-disabled dancers, and their view of the human body in all its differences and its place in dance changed my entire outlook on who is and isn’t a dancer. Suddenly every misconception I had was challenged. Anybody can dance, all bodies are valid, all bodies are interesting and worthy and able of expressing. How had I missed this? ” (www.amputeekat.com)
