A group of dancers with disabilities is taking part in a photography exhibition to prove anyone can dance - and to encourage others to say “yes I can”.
All the dancers were photographed reimagining famous dance moments, from Gene Kelly singing in the rain, Moira Shearer as a young ballerina in The Red Shoes and *that* lift from Dirty Dancing.
“I didn’t have any confidence,” says Stephen, a wheelchair dancer. “I wouldn’t speak to anyone and I certainly wouldn’t have done this.”
“All people can dance. Even people in wheelchairs can dance,” adds Luke.
