The Rollettes Dance Company, a wheelchair dance team, has partnered with catheter maker Cure Medical to create experiences that will help empower women who are mobility users.
Founded by Artistic Director Chelsie Hill in 2012 and based in Los Angeles, the Rollettes includes Steph Aiello, Samantha Lopez, Morgan Ott, Edna Serrano, Maria Rabaino, and Kaitlyn Staten, who are all friends with different injuries and abilities.
The group works under the mission statement, “Women empowering women with disabilities to live boundlessly and shift perspectives through dance.” In addition to special events, the members of the troupe work to inspire tens of thousands of young women daily via social media and YouTube.
As part of the agreement, Cure Medical will provide financial sponsorship of the Rollettes Experience National Camp this summer, Aug. 16 to 19 at the Airport Marriott in Los Angeles.
“In 2012, I started the first dance camp locally in Northern California and invited a few girls to attend and now, five years later it’s grown to women and parents of kids in chairs contacting us from around world,” Hill said. “The Rollettes Experience is more than just dance. It’s about creating lasting friendships and building a community where every woman with a different ability has a place to feel normal, learn about themselves and share vital tools to live boundless.”
“The Rollettes consistently embody our shared values of support, strength and grace within the community we serve," said Cure Medical vice president of marketing Lisa Wells. “Cure Medical is honored to financially support their educational and outreach programs that connect women in creative, collaborative and empowering ways. We're thrilled to partner in the Rollettes' overall mission to help develop the next generation of strong women who roll.”
