So, you're blind. Can you sing? Can you play an instrument? Can you act? Can you dance? Of course you can! Join Lizzy Muhammad-Park and her special guests as they pull back the curtain on their successes and struggles as blind people in the performing arts. Be educated, be challenged, be entertained, and be empowered to join us as we work together to make a "Scene Change" for the blind.

On this episode, Lizzy is joined by three ballet dancers who are successful at their craft and share with us how it’s done.
