Podcast 89: Judith Smith – Artistic Director of AXIS Dance

In podcast 89, Tiffiny is joined by Judith Smith, the artistic director of AXIS Dance Company.

She is a C6 quad from a car accident in 1977 and moved on to a life of dance after her injury, much to her own surprise (she was into horse riding growing up, definitely not dance).

They discuss her journey, discovering the healing aspects of integrated dance, how AXIS was founded… and everything else the company does, including their most recent doings – collaborating with the American DanceWheels Association for a wheelchair ballroom dance competition for the Cheryl Burke Dance School.

Watch Judith perform!

Show run time is 48 minutes.  No Free Rides is sponsored by EasyStand
