SOAR shows us what's possible when a person with alternate abilities gets the love and support they need to adapt. It also shows how caregivers are benefited from their caring as long as they can define themselves outside of their caring.
Dance isn't just moving one's arms and legs, it's moving the space around the body and extending beyond the limbs, that's according to Robert Guitron, founding Director of Polaris Dance Theater. Both he and Spacial Dynamics Institute founder Jaimen McMillan share their insights about movement and how Kiera Brinkley, a quad amputee, manages to move so beautifully. Video clips from past performances highlight their interviews, bringing attention not just to Kiera, but also to her sister Uriah. Growing up with such an amazing example, it's no wonder she too dances with such fluid grace.

For 2 years Uriah Boyd and Kiera Brinkley have been working with filmmaker Susan Hess Logeais to tell their story. With the dance concert that serves as the film's final act set for April 21st, the team needs to raise money to cover their costs and finish the project.
