American Dance Wheels

The wheelchair ballroom and Latin dance classes at the Crystal DanSport Center in New Castle, Delaware are in their second year. The class has participants who are standing or seated learning to partner in dances like cha-cha, swing, rumba, fox-trot and tango. Class is scheduled from 7:30-8:30 but students arrive at least a half-hour early and leave way after class is over. The dancers are all very supportive of one another and enjoy changing partners and getting to know each other. They would love to add more dancers in wheelchairs and standing partners to the Crystal dance group. If you are interested in the beginner’s class, call:
