Silent Rhythms – Teaching Salsa to the Deaf

Recently we profiled a Deaf dancer living in Maryland named Raven Sutton. She is helping to raise awareness for the Deaf population of dancers in the latin dance community and showing us that they can dance just as well as anyone else. Today, I want to highlight a non-profit organization based in Boston called Silent Rhythms.  Their mission statement is below:

Silent rhythms was founded with the mission to use inclusive arts as a way to bring communities together – deaf and hearing, people with and without disabilities – to educate, raise awareness, promote inclusion, and inspire creativity to marginalized communities.

Kerry Thompson is the Founding Executive Director.  The video is from a feature done by the Boston Herald and profiles Kerry and her work in the salsa community.  It’s really cool!
