“Actress and Dancer Courtney Galiano participated in Season 7 tour of So You Think You Can Dance in 2010. Despite feeling some numbness in the lower half of her body, Courtney continued to dance through it. It wasn’t until a year later that she sought help for the symptoms.
Courtney was diagnosed with MS in 2012. Since her diagnosis, Courtney has filmed episodes of Glee and VH1’s Hit the Floor, danced with Al Pacino in the movie Stand Up Guys, and performed in Dancing with the Stars and Hair, among several other dance and acting opportunities.
Courtney started her own dance convention called The BEAT just before her diagnosis. She and her brother teamed up with the National MS Society following her diagnosis to start The BEAT MS, a foundation that raises money for the National MS Society through a yearly Dance Walk event in Los Angeles, CA.”
