We first meet Jake, Veronica, Caitlin and Alexandria in a joyful afterschool program for physically challenged children. In their own words, and by their own deeds, these kids, ages 5 to 15, reveal what it’s like to deal with the literal ups and downs of a challenged life. They and their families model grace, self-acceptance and candor. The kids are supported in their determination to dance in a recital by the combination of dedicated parenting and authentic community involvement. A diverse group of typical teenage volunteers – outstanding citizens in a world where the impulse to exclude, make fun or ignore can be the norm – work together for a year in a studio teeming with excited kids, culminating in a glittery, jittery spring performance. In the process, our dancers grow stronger, more confident and even more outspoken.
