Dancing Dreams, Where Recitals Are Possible For Children With Disabilities #WATWB

<p>The #WATWB was created as a mission to negate the overwhelming negativity that has been present in our social media streams. For every negative news story in the world, there are plenty of positive, uplifting stories that show hope, compassion and the resiliency of everyday people who face insurmountable challenges. Our hope is to share heartwarming stories that lift the human spirit. The last Friday of every month bloggers will share their stories led by six co-hosts, this month’s co-host will be Eric Lahti, Roshan Radhakrishnan, Shilpa Garg, Susan Scott and Sylvia McGrath.
At Professor Owl’s Book Corner we love to share positive stories of young people who face challenges break stereotypes and shine. At this dance company, children with disabilities can do something they never imagined they could: perform in a dance recital.

  1. Hi Sylvia – just wonderful to see and to listen – loved it … must help so many – the children and the adults … just be happy, smile and laugh and sing/dance … brilliant – thank you – Hilary

  2. Like Susan, I’m also teary and smiling at the joy of these kids and their parents. This teacher has done a wonderful thing for kids with disabilities by giving them the means and encouragement to dance. Kudos to her for her amazing efforts and thanks for sharing this story.

  3. This was such a moving video and such a happy one. Just watching those little ones confidently perform – ‘ I just want to be a star’! one of them said. And of course she does!
    Thank you for co-hosting the WATWB.
