Infinite Flow was founded by Marisa Hamamoto, a professional ballroom dancer who was temporarily paralyzed from the neck down with a rare stroke called spinal cord infarction in 2006. More on her story HERE.
Jan 1, 2018 Update: We've changed our name from "Infinite Flow - A Wheelchair Dance Company" to "Infinite Flow - An Inclusive Dance Company". Though we plan to continue to develop the craft of wheelchair ballroom, we've opened our doors to dancers of all abilities and all walks of life and changed our name to reflect that.
