a terrific article in the boston globe by cristela guerra, “dance instructor doesn’t need to hear the music to be moved.”
it’s the story of kerry thompson, who teaches salsa at blackstone community center. but she is deaf and legally blind.
she doesn’t need to hear the music to know how it moves her. she feels the rhythm as it vibrates through the speakers and the floor.
she discovered salsa 13 years ago. it was a tactile language that spoke to her. it was also one of the first times a friend invited her to dance.
please leave a reply below if you were “moved.”
