A black and white photograph of Vanessa dancing with her rollator (walker). She is leaning onto her walker with one arm gently leaning on the handle and the other arm leaning on the backrest. Her serene face is gently looking out into the distance. Her legs are positioned in a mid-walking stance. One of her leg braces is visible. Her hair is pulled back into a ballet bun. She is wearing a tulle dress; dark top, light and fluffy skirt. She is in a well lit dance studio where mirrors are visible and her reflection is present.
