About The Rollettes:
The Rollettes were founded in 2012 when Chelsie Hill sustained a spinal cord injury as a passenger in a drunk driving accident. She wanted to connect with other women that could relate to her and so she invited women who use wheelchairs to join her for dance classes. Every Summer, the Rollettes invite wheelchair users who are women, from all over the world to spend a week together to form connections through dance. Today, the team consists of eight trailblazers in the disability community, who continue to make a difference each day. The Rollettes have been featured on Good Morning America, Teen Vogue, TODAY, Instagram and more! View their full EPK here.
