Disabled dancers recreate famous scenes from films

31 March 2016

To get more disabled people to take up dance classes, producer Louise Wildish and photographer Sean Goldthorpe created a series of images of disabled dancers recreating famous scenes from musicals.

‘I hope that when people first see the pictures they don’t realise that the dancer has a disability and then have to double-take to notice.’ — Louise Wildish

The photos were created as part of an exhibition for Community Dance — a charity which helps disabled people get into or return to dance. The images were recently featured on Buzzfeed.

For more information, including where you can catch the exhibition throughout the year, visit the Community Dance website.
