First Flight Crew - Disability and Dance
After these great new performances the group were offered the opportunity to perform at the Beach Road Hotel as part of a hip hop night with interstate and international artists.
In 2009 most of the orginal group returned (with some newbies) to take part if a song creation workshop with Morganics, creating their first original song called Funky Guitar Style Noises. The Group, then called the Funkeze is now called the First Flight Crew.
They have some fabulous videos and great bios on the group members on their website.
What I love about this group is the fact that these individuals have not been limited by their disability and have really shown the world what they are made of through creative dance and entertainment. Their story is all about overcoming a challenge but at the same time representing people with disability in creative arts.
I always keep my eyes peeled for amazing stories of individuals and groups. If I've missed anything that should be mentioned or you have a story to tell, let me know! It helps to share your experiences because you will find that they are shared by many. Email firstname.lastname@example.org to share your story on the blog.
