News: From Paralysis to performance in just eight months
Jack Widdowson, 19, was told he might never dance again after he was left paralysed with serious spinal injuries from an attack during a night out with his brothers in Cardiff.
Jack trained at London Contemporary Dance School and is one of the youngest apprentice dancers at Bern:Ballett in Switzerland. Jack returns to the stage this Friday at Tring Education School just eight months after the assault.
