  • Hello, my name is Eric Graise
  • and this is my dance journey.
  • My disability has always been part of my life.
  • I was born with a missing bone in both of my legs,
  • the fibula,
  • and I had them amputated when I was a small kid.
  • Being a double-leg amputee, you hear a lot of things.
  • You have a lot of people who have a lot of opinions
  • about what you can do and what you can't do.
  • But when I was a little kid, I used to jump around
  • and move around my room, especially to music,
  • but I had no idea I was dancing.
  • So, I would spend years watching YouTube videos,
  • um, watching "So You Think You Can Dance,"
  • and I would just, honestly, I would just cry.
  • You know, it was the one thing
  • that I thought I wouldn't be able to do well,
  • or at least eventually strive to do well,
  • and that's important to me as an artist.
  • So, while I was a theater major,
  • one of my professors wanted to show me a video
  • and there was an amputee.
  • And he wasn't wearing prosthetics
  • and the characters and the movement in it
  • all centered around him and his movement
  • and how he interacted in the world.
  • Oh, man, it blew my mind.
  • So, after I graduate college,
  • I audition for a company entitled Full Radius Dance.
  • And they are an integrated dance company
  • with people with disabilities
  • and people who don't have disabilities.
  • I took a chance and they took a chance on me,
  • and you know, here I am today,
  • and it's been amazing.
  • They honestly changed my life.
  • I wouldn't be sitting here today if it wasn't
  • for that company.
  • I spent so much time trying to imitate people
  • who weren't disabled.
  • But I learned that I could live in it and love myself
  • and show the world, like, who I am
  • and not be afraid to do that.
  • That's when the door sort of opened up.
  • That's when everything started to make sense
  • and that's when I got the call for "Step Up."
  • It was for a character named King
  • and he was this disabled character
  • who was a DJ, a singer, a rapper,
  • um, all these different things,
  • and just, it was totally reflective of my life,
  • which is crazy.
  • I thought I'd never see anything that was written
  • for me with such detail.
  • It was really a dream
  • come true.
