Our Story

Dance For Paralysis was founded by Thomas Smith at a concert in April 2011. While attending this show, Thomas was enjoying himself but realized while being the so-called “elephant in the room” he could not dance like his fellow concertgoers. At that moment, Dance For Paralysis was born. Thomas and Team Cure Paralysis are committed to raising money by working with different elements of the entertainment industry to help those living with paralysis. All members would like to thank you for your support and together, we will find a CURE for paralysis!


Our Mission

Team Cure Paralysis is committed to providing state of the art equipment and resources necessary to enhance the mobility and access to the daily world of all persons, regardless of the extent of individual needs. Our team is also committed to the integrity, dedication, responsibilities, and empathy that guarantee all persons the maximum mobility during their lifetime. No person should ever be denied maximum mobility because of financial status and that is what our members’ honor and stand for.


Our Goals

  • Team Cure Paralysis sees music as a motivator that can help those with paralysis enjoy life, as well as continue to do therapy until a cure is found.
  • Because music is a universal language we want to educate the public about the paralysis community by using concerts and shows as the primary vehicle to connect with our audience.
  • In addition to raising awareness, we raise funds to financially assist the paralysis community in finding a cure for paralysis.
  • And when we find a cure for paralysis, which we will, we want to have the entire paralysis community come join us for the dance of a lifetime!


Krewella-Dance For Paralysis Electric family bracelet


We are extremely proud to announce the Dance For Paralysis x Krewella x Electric Family bracelet as our first philanthropic project to benefit paraplegics and quadriplegics around the world. 100% of the proceeds from each bracelet will be donated directly to Dance For Paralysis. A special thank you to Krewella, Electric Family and the entire TH3RD BRAIN team!

“Every time we go on stage, we will stand and dance for those with paralysis. We believe that by working with our Krew that our efforts will help get people out of wheelchairs and back dancing again!” says Jahan of Krewella. “We fell in love with the Foundation’s mission because we can donate money on an individual basis and directly help those suffering from paralysis,” says Yasmine of Krewella.

“All parties involved strongly believe that by working together, we will become an international beacon of hope for those living with paralysis. Our goal is to provide the proper medical resources for those with paralysis so that one day they can join us for a dance” says Thomas Smith.

“The Electric Family bracelet will be the first endeavor of many that we will build together in an effort to help find a cure for paralysis. Tom’s story is an inspiration and his success dealing with paralysis gives hopes to paraplegics everywhere,” says manager Jake Udell.

Electric Family is an EDM lifestyle brand that allows artists to support their charity of choice through a custom artist series bracelet. Co-founder of Electric Family, Steve Brudzewski, says “It is our mission, along with Krewellas’, to show the world that together we can make a significant impact improving the lives of others.”
