Created in the summer of 2007 by Montreal-based dancer/motivational speaker Luca “Lazylegz” Patuelli, ILL-ABILITIES™ is an all-star team of differently-abled dancers whose initial goal was to compete in the breakdance competition circuit, showing the world that anything is possible.
The crew gets its name from the standard in hip-hop culture of using a negative term to refer to something positive. Examples of this can be heard in studios or at competitions where dancers compliment each other by saying they were bad, nasty or mean. The “ill” in ILL-ABILITIES™ does not refer to “sick” or “unwell” but rather to incredible, amazing, intricate talent. Rather than seeing the negative limitations of “disability,” this crew focuses on their positive, or “ill,” abilities.
