WATCH: Deaf choreographer teaches students to dance to vibrations

“Keep It Moving” video wins award at Tribeca Film Festival

Choreographer Chris Fonseca is the subject of this inspiring short film about teaching the deaf to dance by showing them how to feel, rather than hear, the rhythm through the vibrations of the music.

“When they feel that. That’s a big deal. That’s the time when they come alive,” says choreographer Chris Fonseca, who is deaf himself.

Fonseca teaches a hip-hop dance class to the hearing and non-hearing. This video, entitled “Chris Fonseca: Keep It Moving” was sponsored by Smirnoff Ice, and recently won the Tribeca Film Festival award for branded content.
