And They Danced!
Here's what we did in 2017. Stay tuned for 2018!
Please check back three months
before the Expo for the new schedule.
Every Body Dance!

Join the Center for Modern Dance Education (CMDE) for a short Modern Dance performance featuring a mixed-ability cast, followed by an interactive dance workshop.

Dance for Everyone
Presented by: Nyemchek's Dance Center Presents Roll Call Wheelchair Dance
Wheelchair dancing is a fun, social and therapeutic activity. Roll Call Wheelchair Dance members will demonstrate some of the basic dance steps including the walk, swing and waltz – showing both beginner and intermediate versions. Next up it's a single ladies line dance (with a special part for the guys!) and a few solo performances. Then it's your turn for an exciting group number that everyone can participate in, standing or sitting. And it all wraps with a mini lesson for everyone. All levels of ability are welcome. Stop by their booth #248 during the weekend for a one-on-one lesson. Wheelchair Dancing crosses the boundaries of age, gender, and physical ability and includes individuals using manual or power chairs with varying levels of ability.
