Dance Party! (Again!)

Reader note: I’ve started using my name, ’s.e. smith,’ rather than my pseudonym, ‘meloukhia,’ to identify myself on FWD. I apologise in advance if that causes any confusion! I’m sticking this notice on my posts for a few days to make sure that everyone sees it.

Here’s Japanese singer Kaoru ballroom dancing with a partner. Kaoru has been blind since her teens due to Behçet Disease and is a ballroom dance instructor in addition to being a singer.

Deaf dancers from the China Disabled People’s Performing Art Troupe performing ‘Buddha with 1,000 Hands.’

A trailer for ‘Sound of Silence,’ a work by Deaf Can Dance, an Australian dance troupe, which was originally performed in the 2008 Melbourne Fringe Festival.

Thanks to Anna for helping me find videos!
