Take a look at Lyena Strelkoff's updated website. This is snipped from the intro:

My name is Lyena Strelkoff and I’m an actor, dancer, writer, performance artist, and teacher. In October 2002, a fall in the Malibu hills left me paralyzed from the waist down. Statistically speaking, I’m not expected to walk again. But with the support of friends and family, I’m inviting a better outcome, one where my body is fully restored, reveling in motion and the most precious touch.

My friends and I created this web site to share news about my injury and the progress I make toward recovery. You’ll find links to general information about spinal cord injury, as well as details of my personal experience.


Lyena is an inspiration to me in the way she contiues to share deeply with others her very personal experiences of life.

 Greek Night Returns to Cafe Danssa

In January I attended a Reunion of the Intersection. I began folk dancing in 1970 while staying with my sister, Carolina, one summer in Los Angeles. What an amazing night the reunion was! I got to see many of my old friends and connect with people I use to perform with as the Intersection Dancers, Panegri, Gypsy Camp and an brief stint in an Arabic Folk group. I was amazed at the love so present in the music, in the connections and in the dance.

At one point in the evening a haspiko came on. All of our old dance teachers got up and formed a line to dance together once again. It was beautiful to see! As in any small village (300 of us total), we arranged ourselves in a spiral, circling around these elders. At the front of the line were those of us they taught and performed with. Looking around the circle I sensed a feeling of community that is unique to this group of people.

I am delighted to know the energy of the night shifted many of us and the dance, like our connections continue.....
