We are happy to participate in the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge-the newest viral sensation, but not because it is a viral sensation. ALS is a terrible, debilitating disease that slowly robs its victims of the ability to move.
As dancers, movement is who we are. It is what we do. Movement is how we express our art. A world without movement is a scary place for us to imagine. We have lost family and friends to ALS, and it is time we end this thing.
