Judith started working as an actor and dancer in the 1960s. At 65, with two hip replacements, she decided to return to the world of dance, but in a different role. ANYONE CAN DANCE® serves those with movement restrictions, whether they are on their feet or in chairs, wheelchairs or walkers. GENERATION DANCE, her group of elders and teens working together, brings even more joy to her work. She also trains professionals in the geriatric care field. Judith was a recent Hunter CCS TEDx speaker and presented at the 2015 Mayo Clinic Humanities in Medicine Symposium.
