VIDEO: Infinite Flow Wheelchair Dance Company Breaks Through Artistic Barriers

Earlier this season, Ali Stroker became Broadway's fist wheelchair-using actor in Deaf West Theatre's production of SPRING AWAKENING and many audience members' eyes were opened to a new realization of the capabilities of wheelchair users.

Out in Los Angeles, Infinite Flow - A Wheelchair Dance Company has been breaking artistic barriers since January of 2015.

Artistic Director Marisa Hamamoto founded the company after 20 years of dancing ballet and contemporary dance in both the US and Japan. She started salsa and ballroom dancing while recovering from spinal cord infarction, a severe neurological disease which laid her paralyzed from the neck down.

Infinite Flow is her way of giving back her love for dance to those who live with paralysis, and it is her life mission to share the magic of dance to people of all abilities.

Along with their schedule of performances, Infinite Flow participates in community outreach by giving dance instruction to wheelchair and power-chair users, and is developing a comprehensive wheelchair dance teacher training program, creating a universal language of wheelchair social dancing.
