Barry Martin (1961-2006).
But the fact Martin was confined to a wheelchair never stopped him from continuing his involvement in dance. After receiving a graduate degree in arts administration from New York University, he established Deja Vu Dance Theater in 1986--so named "because dance was something I saw once and now see again in a new way." Alvin Ailey commissioned Martin's Chelsea's Bells for his company. Martin ran workshops at the Public Theater in New York and had just established a children's dance workshop with students from The Ailey School, School of American Ballet, and Dance Theatre of Harlem. He was working toward a further degree at NYU in arts and disabilities when he died.
