We had a couple choir members in wheel chairs last semester and one of them didn't always like to dance with us. One day, though, she planted herself between me and my partner, Sara, and it was so fun to hold her hand and dance and sing with her! She got so excited when we did, too, and just wouldn't stop grinning. It's amazing to see how music and dance affects people in the most positive ways and it's such a blessing to be a part of that!
Hey you amazing, generous students! Just want to thank you for another wonderful semester of giving, singing, choreographing, creating, hugging, loving, and most of all, providing a community of belonging for a population that usually struggles to find that. I think you're doing one of the most important things on campus!
