“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)
