The Rollettes Los Angeles Presents!

What do you get when you take seven talented young dancers whose zest for life outpaces any challenges that come their way, including the life-altering events that put them on wheels?


You get the Rollettes. And you can see them in hip-hopping, blood-pumping action at Abilities Expo!

In the tradition of wheelchair dancing troupes like Colours~n~Motion and AXIS Dance Company, the The Rollettes is revolutionizing the world of dance and dispelling antiquated notions of what it is to be a dancer. Their success and rising fame echo the sentiments of wheelchair dancer and Abilities Expo veteran Auti Angel when she says, "Dance is a state of mind and an attitude, not just a physical motion."

Led by Chelsie Hill, co-founder of the The Rollettes and featured character on the Sundance channel's hit docu-series Push Girls, the dancers were initially drawn to each other by their injuries, but continue to flourish and inspire because of their indomitable spirits and love of dance.

Hill's fellow dancers hail from coast to coast. "These are all girls I've met since being injured," said Hill. "These girls have gone through some pretty traumatic things like their injuries, but they have all switched it around to being completely positive. We all love to dance, so we decided to start a team with all seven of us. It's pretty cool."

Taking travel risks

Don't miss your chance to not only watch the The Rollettes tear up the dance floor, but also learn a couple hot, hip-hop moves yourself! The Team is looking forward to meeting you at Abilities Expo!
