dancing with any body

This article is about a guy named Gregg Mozgala who has cerebral palsy and transformed his movement abilities through working with a choreographer on a dance piece. The method the choreographer used was her own intuition but it sounds remarkably similar to the Anat Baniel Method- paying close attention to your own body, learning new ways to move with out using force etc etc. It is an inspiring story and adds to the growing proof that the adult brain has remarkable capacity to change and grow. Imagine what could be possible for so many people with limitations- either known or unknown! Most interesting.
To add to the 6 degrees (or less) of separation, my friend Martha knows the son of the doctor interviewed in the video clip!
