May 10, 2019 – Charlotte, NC. – Kinetic Prosthetics recently hosted a First Dance as part of their recognition of Limb Loss Awareness Month. Amputees, therapists, clinicans and family members came together at the West Chester YMCA to enjoy a social dance lesson especially for them. Dance Instructors were Becky Ciccone and Connor Moffit from Elegance in Motion Dance Studio on Clarkston, Michigan.
Participants tried Argentine Tango, Merengue, Swing and Nightclub Slow. Social Partner dance is great for the limb loss population because it’s slow, your partner helps with balance and it’s Fun!
“I couldn’t be more honored to support and sponsor OPAF’s First Clinics. The First Dance was just the most recent example of the ability of these programs to bring strangers together, socialize, and literally dance” offered Kinetic co-founder Mark Nielsen, CP, ATC. This is the fourth First Clinic that Kinetic has sponsored following a series of First Climb Clinics in 2018.
