I have been a fan of the organization for many years, and when I myself became a wheelchair user, I signed up for their summer classes in 2009. The patience and upbeat pace of Douglas as a teacher gave me my first taste of the true art form that their style of movement and dancing feels like. I had seen it from the audience, and through the help of the volunteer company participants, I had the opportunity to experience it for myself. In the later months I, along with a few others, were permitted to work out with the dancers on a weekly basis, donating their time and energy to us without reserve.
