Choreographer David Dorfman, Transformed
"In 2007, Mr. Dorfman weathered a serious car accident near New London, Conn ... It was the end of a long day (and, at around 1:30 a.m., the beginning of another); about 15 minutes from home, Mr. Dorfman fell asleep at the wheel. 'I was so unbelievably lucky,' he said. 'So I've just had, as trite as this may seem, I've had this appreciation for every heartbeat, every moment.'"
