Simi Linton, a wheelchair-riding social activist, takes us out dancing with the avant-garde of disabled artists and radical thinkers - unstoppable in their quest for “equality, justice, and a place on the dance floor!"

Simi Linton's personal story forms the narrative backbone of Invitation To Dance, a film based on her memoir "My Body Politic."  In 1971, Simi was injured while hitchhiking to Washington to protest the war in Vietnam.  Suddenly a young disabled college student in New York, she confronts insidious discrimination she couldn't have imagined before.  Simi emerges as a resourceful activist, and in time realizes that love, sexuality, and dance can once again be central to her life.
