American DanceWheels Foundation (ADF) makes a significant contribution to the lives of individuals using wheelchairs for mobility and their able-bodied partners by providing social and therapeutic dance instruction in Wheelchair Ballroom and Latin Dancing. ADF gives participants a more social perspective than other wheelchair dance programs, because it allows students to dance with a spouse, family member, friend, or significant other employing traditional dance elements such as connection, lead, and follow. ADF’s written curriculum allows people to dance at social events, like weddings and clubs, using both manual and power wheelchairs. In addition ADF’s program creates a novel way to enhance physical conditioning emphasizing better posture, flexibility, head control, balance, range of motion, and wheelchair operation. ADF employs the language of dance to break down the social barriers between the able-bodied and disabled worlds.
Volunteer Opportunity: We are looking for volunteers who want to perform a mitzvah project by standing partners to dance with individuals using wheelchairs. This community service project is offered Saturdays 1:00-3:00pm.
