“Dance as if no one is watching.” That was the line she used to describe her recovery to anyone that asked her the key to her success.

Before the accident she was a dancer with the usual ambitions: an appetite for fame, success and power. And of course handsome men to be her partner.

That all changed after her automobile accident. The one that left her dreams and her legs shattered. Dancers are artists and athletes and she felt she would fail on both counts. But she also knew that no dancer ever became successful riding on their natural-born talents only. She developed a plan with her mother and a wonderful dance coach. And she also found her handsome partner.

The actual quote from her dance coach was “When life hands you wheels learn how to dance in them.”




  1. DJ – What a wonderful story and the inspiring video that follows! It just goes to show that we are not limited! We can always find the good in everything, we just have to find it with a positive outlook and open mind! Thanks again for taking part in the challenge! Stay tuned….


  2. Well done! A wonderful interpretation of the image. I’m reminded of the saying – ‘When life hands you lemons, make lemonade’.
    Absolutely loved and enjoyed the video. Being an ex-comp dancer I truly enjoyed…
