Dance for Everyone Event

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.
Wheelchair Dancing crosses the boundaries of age, gender, and physical ability and includes individuals using manual or power chairs with varying levels of ability.
