Bridging the gap between disability and dance, one step at a time.
My name is Briju. I am a left-arm amputee I lost my arm in a bike accident at the age of 28. Dancing had always been a passion and one of my first thoughts in the hospital bed was that I need to figure out how to salsa with one hand. Thanks to my friends, soon I was on stage with them performing in Singapore. That really boosted my confidence to be up there continuing to do what I love to do. Today, I am one of the co-founders/trustees for a non-profit in India - One Step at a Time and one of the main initiatives I drive as a part of our NGO is to create accessible opportunities for PwDs to pursue the passion of dance and its different forms. Our team loves to perform and we hope to remove any awkwardness and misconceptions around the topic of disability through dance.
