Zoe has participated in dance with her peers – fully included – for seven years. She’s treated like everyone else in the dance troupe – no shadows, no accommodations, no special equipment. It’s the one place where everyone sees a dancer – not a little girl needing extra help because she has Mosaic Down syndrome. This year, she transitioned to hip hop. Now she takes jazz, tap and hip hop, which has challenged her endurance.
