They say dance is the hidden language of the soul. It’s something that can connect all people, regardless of the differences that may exist between us. The truth is that most people love dancing, but we all have different capabilities when it comes to the kind of moves we can perform. Still, everybody can dance and everybody deserves to feel the joy that comes from dancing.
With that in mind, Marisa Hamamoto had the wonderful idea to help people with disabilities discover and unleash their inner dancer. That’s because Marisa knows first-hand just how much of a difference dancing can do in someone’s life.
After being temporarily paralyzed from the neck down due to a rare condition, it was dance that changed her life for the better and helped her see things in a different light. After she made a full recovery, Marisa decided to start a program to bring dance to those with disabilities and who are in a wheelchair. Her company is called Infinite Flow and it’s basically a wheelchair dance company meant to help people push their boundaries and redefine disability.
The people she’s helped so far prove that the only limit that truly exists is the one you set for yourself.
