Krishna Washburn is a professional ballet dancer and instructor who runs Dark Room Ballet.  She believes that visually impaired people could benefit from having a better understanding of how their bodies and body parts work.  Hosts Nancy and Peter Torpey talk with her about her instructional methods as well as how her on-line classes work.

Dark Room Ballet is Krishna Washburn’s specialized introductory dance curriculum for blind and visually impaired dancers. It is a toolbox course that teaches specific skills, including finding balance without sight, maintaining orientation with auditory and foot sensitivity, and self-correction with internal alignment.
