Dance company provides positive impact for community

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

A group of kids in a local dance company is leaping over life's obstacles. The Vizion Dance Company is made up of talented musicians, artists and health educators who are determined to make a positive impact on the community.
    
Many of their members have also overcome debilitating ailments. Emma-Lee Skie Justice, 9, was diagnosed with celiac disease and was not expected to ever walk. Now she's dancing up a storm!

"When I dance, I feel like I'm in a new world. Dancing is my passion. It just makes me feel better," said Justice.

Vizion co-founder Monique Barashango says through their program, the dancers are living a purpose-driven life. All of the music the ensemble dances to is composed by the group.
