Episode 42 - The Dancer Movement - Sofia Blasco - Reimagining dance for people with disabilities Move It or Lose it - The Podcast

    • Fitness

Anyone who knows me - or has listened to this podcast! - will know the importance I place on the mind-body connection. And I think that dance is a perfect way to develop this while also expressing yourself. But sadly many people with disabilities don’t see dance as something for them. 
On today’s podcast I’m talking to Sofia Blasco, co-founder and Executive Director of The Dancer Movement. This grassroots organization is dedicated to re-imagining the experience of dance for people with disabilities. The Dancer Movement utilizes the craft of dance to re-imagine the definitions of movement for every person. I’m also joined by my regular guest Julie Stamm, who is actually one of the reasons that this organization exists! 
We discuss why Sofia started The Dancer Movement just as COVID hit, how the classes have worked over Zoom, why the whole point of dance as an expression means that not everyone has to look the same, plans for the future, and the health and well-being benefits of dance.
