This Woman May Not Be Able To Walk But She Sure Can Dance, And She's Proving It On 'Ellen'

"I just want to show the world that dance is dance, whether you're walking or you're rolling."

Earlier this month, we covered Chelsie Hill — the inspiring woman who wouldn't let a devastating car accident stop her from being a dancer.  

During senior year of high school, Hill was in an accident that left her paralyzed from the bellybutton down. Fifty-one days after leaving the hospital, Hill got back into dancing, Ellen DeGeneres explains in a recent interview with Hill on The Ellen Show.  

Since then, Hill, 25, has founded the Rollettes, a group of women in wheelchairs who "joined together to share their love for dance. For them, it is not just about dance, but they also strive to empower others to continue their passion regardless of their abilities," their website explains.

"Being a dancer my whole life, I had no idea what a spinal cord injury was," Hill tells DeGeneres before taking to the stage to perform in front of the show's audience. "But I want to dance, you know, and when I take classes in [Los Angeles], it's my time to be at home again." 



"I just want to show the world that dance is dance, whether you're walking or you're rolling."

With that, Hill and her dance partner, Josh Killacky, perform a beautiful dance set to Calum Scott's "Rhythm Inside." You can check it out in full below:
