Let the Dance Whisperer help you find the dance gene in YOU!!!!!!!
Just one look at the confidence and joy that the performers display as they glide along in their wheelchairs rockin and rolling to the music, is all you need to realize that this is a life changing activity not just for the dancers but for the people that have the opportunity to see this great dance expression unmatched by any other dance venue.
The confidence and recognition that the dancers receive is a boost of self-esteem un-paralleled by any other activity. Lifelong relationships with their wheelchair peers and the inclusiveness with the rest of society are the rewards of this great community we call the Wheelchair Dancers organization.
The Mission of the Wheelchair Dancers Organization is to bring ballroom, Latin, and contemporary dance to the wheelchair community, empowering and benefitting the body, mind, and spirit of all.
This is accomplished by providing wheelchair dancing programs, organizing classes, performances and training camps serving children and adults with disabilities. Providing recreational and performance level dancing to wheelchair and able bodied dancers. This emphasizes to the public the healthful aspects of wheelchair ballroom dancing: it’s physical, mental and emotional benefits.
All that WDO does will be for the purpose of providing opportunity for the sport of dance for those who would otherwise be denied, were it not for the wheelchair adaptation.
Financial support is necessary in order to train disabled individuals, able-bodied partners, dance teachers, and adaptive sports professionals. In addition to training of individuals and teachers, the organization also requires funding for performance and competitive venues which is of utmost importance in heightening visibility and credence within traditional society.
