We had a wonderful opportunity to meet with Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the founder of Dancing Wheels Company & School while we were in Cleveland, OH last week for the CMSA conference. Mary is the first professional wheelchair dancer in the US and she started Dancing Wheels as a professional, physically integrated dance company uniting the talents of dancers both with and without disabilities. John Wright, owner of Amramp Cleveland is a member of the Board of Directors.
Dancing Wheels is a touring company and sometimes the stages in other cities are not accessible for the dancers. Amramp has worked with Dancing Wheels for several years to provide temporary wheelchair ramps for their performances.
We had the opportunity to view one of the student rehearsals last week. It was very uplifting and inspiring. Check out their upcoming events here.
