I Can Dance tells of a child diagnosed with a form of muscular dystrophy who achieved education (bachelor's and master's degree), friendships, family, and professional employment as teacher and administrator. Throughout, the author speaks with frank intimacy about her life with a disability, the good, the bad, and the sometimes strange and surprising. I Can Dance will open eyes and hearts to the potential of people with even severe physical disabilities and show a unique and vibrant individual growing and thriving amidst challenges and opportunities in the lively background of the 1960s and 1970s and beyond, from childhood to grandparenthood. This is a life lived fully and told with enthusiasm. Foreword by Catherine Campisi, former Director, California Department of Rehabilitation, and disability advocate.
