Rebecca was training as a physiotherapist when she was diagnosed with her Multiple Sclerosis (MS). As her condition progressed, she found it increasingly hard to be active – and impossible to do the job she’d trained for. Joining her wheelchair dance group helped her turn how she felt about things around. Dance helped her manage the depression that came about after her diagnosis, and has become one of the activities she loves the most.
How Rebecca Gets Moving
For Rebecca, there’s no better way to get moving than dancing. She’s able to let loose and have fun, no matter the style of dance. She says it’s completely changed her life, and always comes away from her sessions feeling much better than when she’d started it.
Following the pandemic, Rebecca’s MS flared up, affecting her mental health, but with the support of her close family she has been able to rebuild her fitness and return to face-to-face dance classes. Being back in person has enabled her to “do something [she] loves with a group of wonderful friends”. She says that getting moving whilst having fun always leaves her feeling happy!
