Instructor Helps Visually Impaired Feel Freedom Through Dance


BEING VISUALLY IMPAIRED COMES WITH CHALLENGES. ONE INSTRUCTOR WANTS TO OPEN THE WORLD OF DANCE FOR THOSE THAT CANNOT SEE. WE ARE LIVE IN LITTLETON AS A GROUP LEARNS ABOUT LATIN DANCE. Reporter: YOU DON’T BE ABLE TO SEE TO BE ABLE TO MOVE. HE IS PROVING THAT ONE STUDENT AT A TIME. AFTER A PARTICULARLY PAINFUL BREAKUP, HE DECIDED TO GET OUT OF THE HOUSE AND MEET PEOPLE BY GOING TO A LATIN DANCE CLUB. WHEN I GOT THERE THERE WAS A COUPLE DANCING. Reporter: HE ASKED THE WOMAN TO DANCE AND LEARNED HER PARTNER WANTS HER TEACHER. HE LEARNED HOW TO DANCE AND KEPT GOING BACK. AND THAT’S WHEN IT LIKE TO GO OUT DANCING. THE INSTRUCTOR DID NOT KNOW HOW TO MODIFY THE INSTRUCTIONS. I THOUGHT I COULD DO THIS. I WAS DESCRIBING HOW TO MOVE THE BODY AND WHERE TO PLACE HER FEET. Reporter: SHE TOLD HIM NO NEVER TRY TO TEACH HER BECAUSE THEY ASSUME SHE COULDN’T. THAT IS WHEN HE DECIDED HE NEEDED TO TEACH MORE BLIND PEOPLE TO DANCE. THEY HAD BEEN EXCLUDED FROM DANCING FOR A LONG TIME. Reporter: ON SATURDAY HE TAUGHT A WHOLE ROOM FULL OF PEOPLE THAT WERE BLIND AND VISUALLY IMPAIRED HOW TO DANCE. IT MAKES YOU HAPPY. I RECOMMEND, ANY MUSICIANS THAT HELPS YOU WITH YOUR MUSIC SKILLS AS WELL. IT IS FREEDOM. TO GET TO CONNECT WITH A PERSON AND BE IN THE MOMENT AND FEEL THE MUSIC. IT IS LIBERATING. Reporter: HE DOES DO PRIVATE LESSONS.
