Elec Simon makes a guest appearance during a performance of Daring to be Dumbo. Mary Verdi-Fletcher, founder of Dancing Wheels, conceived of re-telling Dumbo first as a live dance performance, then as a documentary film, and now as an ongoing educational program for schools, prisons and other institutions with bullying problems.
The made-for-television documentary, Daring to Be Dumbo, airs on Clevelands Channel 3, WKYC on April 5th, at 7p.m.
