Exploring Multi-Dimensional Dance Moves at USF Disability Forum

This 2 minute video clip is from the University of South Florida's Annual Disability Forum.  Merry Lynn explains a multi-dimensional perspective to movement and disability awareness.  The three dimensions are somewhat based on Laban's categories of movement studies.  The dance is portrayed symbolically to represent that until we realize each other, we cannot have a full life.  Becoming fully aware is necessary in helping others. or
This Annual Disability Awareness Forum was from last fall 2009.  This year the event will be held at USF's Marshall Center Ballroom on Tuesday, October 12, 2010.  The keynote speaker will be a decorated, disabled Iraq Veteran - L.Tammy Duckworth - who was appointed by President Obama as Assistant Secretary for Public & Inter-Government Affairs for the Dept. of Veterans Affairs.  She lost both legs and part of an arm when a rocket grenade hit her Black Hawk she was co-piloting.  Merry Lynn will present another mixed-ability dance presentation she choreographed for REVolutions Dance Company dancers. It looks like another inspiring event......Praise God! Everyone is welcome.  Hope to see you there just before noon. It will have more camera coverage this year.
