Dance is the hidden language of the soul.
This expression of the human spirit is something people of all abilities feel compelled to do at times. Dancing Wheels Company & School is no exception.
Dancing Wheels is one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the United States, integrating talented professional dancers with and without disabilities. The company was founded in Cleveland in 1980 by Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the country.
Verdi-Fletcher wanted everyone to have access to the world of dance and through her passion, revolutionized the idea of what it meant to be a dancer.
Dancing Wheels is opening their 39th season with a one-night-only performance at the Lincoln Theatre. The evening will present Connections & Intersections, a program that explores humanity and relationships.
The dancers will take the stage and present a variety of performances, including “Walking on Clouds,” which parallels stories from the Civil Rights Movement and Disability Rights Movement, “Missing You,” a work that examines how couples connect within their differences, and “Oddessy,” an exploration of the intersection of paths along one’s journey or experience.
When artists take the stage, their aim is to inspire. This dance company, in particular, proves that limitations are in the eye of the beholder.
Tickets for this inspirational one-night-only event are $25. The show will begin at 7 p.m. on September 20 at The Lincoln Theatre.
