New study delves into breakdancing and the visually impaired
A young man does a breakdancing move on with his body parallel to the ground supported by one hand. A crowd looks on.A group of scientists is looking at how breakdancing is viewed by people with reduced and limited vision. Their theory is that the broad movements and unusual positions used in the dance style are easier for a visually impaired person to process. They also believe that breakdancing can be seen easier than some other forms because many of the moves occur on the floor which may be in a better line of sight for many people with vision loss.
The goal of the study focuses on how to make art forms more accessible to the visually impaired.
