Monica's article- Karen Peterson and Dancers

Exercise is an important aspect of health that benefits one’s physical and mental fitness. The key to exercising effectively is simply being active. However, people with limited physical abilities may find it difficult to find a mode of exercise that is possible to practice actively. In order to create a mode of physical exercise and emotional creativity for people with mixed abilities, Karen Peterson, a long-time Miami choreographer, created a dance troupe of 12 members in 1990. Karen Peterson and Dancers has traveled and performed in over 20 countries since its existence, and includes dancers who use wheelchairs. Through inclusion and integration of those with limited physical abilities, more opportunities for active exercise are created.
