Abstract: On February 19, 1995, for S.B., an 18-year-old dance major in the New World School of the Arts high school dance program and professional dancer with the Isadora Duncan Dance Ensemble, life changed. Two teenagers driving home after midnight from a late-night party both fell asleep. The car went off the road, running into a utility pole. Not a major accident, but the pole hit the car right where S.B.'s right foot was resting against the passenger-side door. This report is about S.B.'s transition from able-bodied dancer to physically-challenged dancer, and what effects this has on the profession, both artistically and medically. Unlike a typical medical case report written by medical professionals, this one is from the viewpoint of a dance professional and dean.
