Back to LIVE ARTS FEST Calendar

 

"Adaptive Dance Showcase presented by Wheelchair Dancers Organization!"

 The Wheelchair Dancers Organization’s dance director, Joe Torres, has choreographed an outstanding variety of dance routines to demonstrate that everyone can dance, no matter what their physical limitations and abilities.

WDO is recognized as the largest dance group in Southern Ca, to offer adaptive dance programs for physically challenged individuals of all ages and abilities.  Since 2008, it has been the community leader in offering Ballroom, Latin, Hip Hop and Contemporary dance classes to wheelchair users and volunteers that partner with them.

You’ll witness a high-energy cha-cha/Salsa routine by our talented wheelchair dancers, 7 and 8 year old, Angelo Sanchez and Emma Mondragon, with their partners,  12 year old, competitive ballroom dancers, Gonzolo and Aitana Perez.

This adaptive dance showcase highlights the dance accomplishments of people with and without disabilities.  It’s an inclusive event that artistically encompasses the power of movement and passion through wheelchair dancing.  Dancers aged from seven to ninety-one will be performing a variety of choreographed pieces from ballroom, Latin, Salsa and Contemporary.  In addition, two collaborative pieces will be performed by Dark Horse Dance Production.

You’ll enjoy this Live Arts production from start to finish!
