intergrated wheelchair dance jam on April 29th - Wow what fun!

On April 29th, my friend Jenny and I bravely traveled by bus from Tacoma to Seattle beause we wanted to dance....

There is a intergrated wheelchair dance group founded by Charlene Curtis, called Light Motion.  They have been performing for 20 plus years all over the world.  My friend Jenny and I had wanted to attend one of their community dance jams for a while and when we went on April 29th, it was awesome!

I was dizzy by the end of the night, but to learn some new ways to dance and move in my wheelchair was great, plus it was just so much fun meeting some new people.

The State Coordindator, Tammy Wilber has danced with Light Motion in the past and was there and got some footage of me dancing. http://www.facebook.com/#!/video/video.php?v=390702509395&ref=mf

(Somehow Tammy took the footage and she is not sure why it is on her facebook page sideways) Anyway, enjoy!

I look foward to doing some more dancing in the future....

Oh and by the way, Light Motion dance group and Tammy will be performing at the Seattle Center House on May 4th at 7PM. This is in conjuction with an event dedicated to the arts of people with disabilities.

April 7th- TACID Fundraiser- Guest Speaker

On April 7th I was invited to attend the High Tea event at the Tacoma Area Coalition for Individuals with Disabilities. It was such an uplifting experience! The number of people who are dedicated to helping the disabled community in their own ways was just phenomenal! The entertainment was great! I would be glad to attend any other event with this truly remarkable group of people. Thank you so much to everyone for making this event what it was and for inviting me to attend! I have to send a big “thank you” to Jannette Saxton for accompanying me to this night of fun! We had a wonderful time!
