It was a joy to read the May 12 article, Dance that crosses physical and geographic boundaries. On opening night, I was wowed by a performance of Karen Peterson and Dancers (KPD). The Miami/Lisbon Dance Exchange was profoundly intense and meaningful.
It’s not enough to just read about the KPD troupe. Their dance programs must be experienced live to be fully appreciated. The cultural element was compelling in the music and dance.
I was moved by the freedom of the wheelchair dancers and the care shown by their traditional dance partners. The performers were fluid grace in motion in light of limitations and athleticism. In pairs and as an ensemble, the dancers moved so beautifully together.
Bravo to Karen Peterson with her uplifting dance troupe.
