More Than A Dancer
** For National Dance Day, OGTV is sharing this story of a young girl with cerebral palsy who refuses to be separated from her favorite dance troupe no matter how high the obstacles. **
This little girl dreamed of one day dancing. Unfortunately, she suffers from cerebral palsy, making this dream more difficult to fulfill than others. In spite of it all, she is able to overcome the obstacles and defeat the odds. Meet Meg Worrick, the 13-year old dancer.
Meg first knew she wanted to become a dancer when she attended one of her little sister's dance recitals. She was filled with an overwhelming emotion of sadness, seeing her sister up on the stage, wishing she could be up there dancing too. With the unconditional support from her parents, dance studio, and dance instructor, this dream became a reality.
"I saw Meg with the moms in the hallway and I asked them 'Why Meg wasn't dancing'," related dance instructor Beth Wheeler. "They said 'Well, she has Cerebral Palsy' and I said, 'So? Why isn't Meg dancing?' and that's when they started Meg in class."
Even with this overwhelming support, Meg still faced challenges. As she grew older, it became more and more difficult to get Meg up to the second-floor dance studio. Due to this issue, she stopped attending classes. This put her journey on pause, but only made her passion for dance grow stronger. From this struggle, blossomed the idea of "17 Steps". This was the challenge Meg had to overcome to get to the studio. The studio members then took that concept and incorporated it into a dance which included everyone in the studio. The called it "17 steps" to represent the challenges that we all face and take throughout life. The message of perseverance, positivity, and inspiration radiate through Meg, in the form of dance.
