A blind woman touches her dancing partner's legs in order to learn the correct steps, at an activity center for people with disabilities. Around 50 people with severe sight difficulties gather for weekly Latin dance sessions at the center. Each of the pupils begins to pick up moves with the sighted teacher, and is then paired off with an experienced partner. They learn everything from rumba to tango by listening to verbal descriptions, and by touch.
