A Word From the Dancers and Audience

I learned that I really enjoy being with young people and that I can learn from them especially those connected to the arts.

Those special young people restored my faith in Canada's future!

I loved it. I would definitely love to do it again. I thought it was so helpful and so nice to hear pieces of advice and words of wisdom from them... I always assumed seniors were fragile before these workshops. When in reality they are some of the strongest people I know. Disabilities are Not only physical. This is one of the best things I've ever been a part of.

My quality of life increased by forming community and sharing talents with others… by sharing life experiences and understanding.

I first had no idea how to connect, then... I found so many friends.

I was blown away by ability. When I see the seniors on with street now, my whole view has changed.

We were very impressed with the fantastic job. It shows us that we live in a city where people are caring for other. It was very moving. We love it.

I attended the showcase last Saturday with my two children and we were really moved...

I loved it! Made me so happy and cried a little (a lot). It was really nice to see such a fun bridge in the gap between what one perceives about age and ability.

Moving, brought me to tears… inspired me and reminded me of the power of dance, care and community.  I like hearing the stories of the older generation.
