We went to meet founder Flora Bitancourt to see her dancers in action – and to find out what difference Movimentarte is making to their lives.
It’s an issue that affects more people than you’d think. According to Flora, 25% of the Brazilian population suffers from some kind of disability.
Movimentarte on a mission to show that people with disabilities can achieve incredible things by connecting with their creativity. Her dancer Ian, who is currently learning English, would probably agree.
Over to dancer Natalie’s mom. “It’s not that they’re different – it’s the way we think of them that’s different.”
