A Unifying Expression of Movement for All

Dancing Wheels Company in Motion

If dance is an expression of the human spirit, then it is best expressed by people of all abilities. That is the fundamental belief behind the Dancing Wheels Company & School. Considered one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the United States, Dancing Wheels is a professional, physically integrated dance company uniting the talents of dancers both with and without disabilities.

The Dancing Wheels Promo video includes clips of a diverse cast of dancers with and without physical disabilities performing several works including “Imagine, if you will…” choreographed by David Dorfman, “Od:yssey” choreographed by Marc Brew, “Pallas Athena” and “Incommunicado” choreographed by Catherine Meredith, and “anomalies” choreographed by Mark Tomasic.
