While teaching her final class of the 2008 spring semester at St. Cloud State University, April Sellers slipped on the dance floor and fell over a bench, separating her left shoulder. The injury was so severe that she had to have her shoulder immobilized for months. She couldn’t dance or teach, and a specialist told her to look for another profession. She turned her adversity into new work that, she says, has broken new ground for her artistry and revitalized her commitment to dance. 3-Minute Egg caught up with Sellers at Rogue Buddha Gallery, in Northeast Minneapolis, where the April Sellers Dance Collective performs Transcendental Biology nightly through March 27.
