Rocca has been in a wheelchair since the age of 25, but she doesn’t see this as a limitation to getting active and feeling good.

Rocca’s Latin background is infused with music and dance, so when she couldn’t find a wheelchair dance group, she decided to create one. Her dance club – Dance & Roll – is now getting people with physical disabilities into choreographed moves and exercise through the release of dance.

“Dance is a great tool to be active and feel happy…everyone has a right to feel free of their own chains,” Rocca said.
