Chicago Dancer Finds New Hope Through The Tango

This week, we are sharing the inspirational story of Chciago dancer, Robby Williams, as profiled by ABC7 News.

With a career as a professional Tango dancer, Robby never would have imagined his life would change completely when in June of 2018, he was shot through his back. Suddenly, his life changed drastically as his lower body function was highly effected and he was now confined to a wheelchair. After consulting with his doctors and physical therapist, he was encouraged to continue dancing. Through dance, he has now found hope, rehabilitation and a new found perspective / creativity to his movement. He continues to make progress in his recovery and dance the Tango on stage throughout the Chicago area.
