I think this is a great opportunity to show people my world. I feel like this is what is normal for me, but for other people, it is a great moment to see how it is in our world, Rose said
Rose Ayling-Ellis (27) dances with the kind of grace you can expect from a finalist. She and her dance partner, Giovanni Pernice (31), have become favorites, but also an inspiration to people around the world.
Namely, this actress can’t hear the rhythm because she has been deaf since birth, and she revealed to CBS News that she can dance even though she can’t hear the rhythm.
– I can dance and I can count. It’s just a different way of learning, a different way of teaching. It’s just different from what others are used to, it’s just different, but it’s so normal for me – said Rose.
This different way means that she relies heavily on the signs of her dance partner. Rose explained that she and her dance partner’s bodies are always close so she can follow him.
“I don’t feel the music, but I can feel Giovanni,” she added.
This dancing couple proved that they can keep up with the competition, so they achieved the earliest best result in the history of this competition.
Thanks to Ayling-Ellis fans, the British Sign Language website has seen a 3,000% increase in people applying to online courses. Her moves made her a role model for the deaf.
– I think this is a great opportunity to show people my world. I feel like this is what is normal for me, but for other people, it is a great moment to see how it is in our world – said the actress.
Rose and Giovanni have qualified for the finals, which are broadcast on the BBC in the UK, and bookies overlook their high ranking in this popular competition.
