Saturday's experimental workshop adapting Argentine Tango to a mixed group of wheelchair users and their dance partners was absolutely amazing. We had so much fun - laughter and music guided us to try the tango walk, rock-steps, ochos, ganchos, low boleos and dancing apart like Gustavo & Giselle Anne. Each dancing couple discovered different ways to lead and follow certain moves and shared it with the group so everyone could try it out. Can you imagine how many creative ways there are to adapt the tango to individual abilities? Thanks to all the inspiring participants & volunteers - you gals & guys rock.
One more thing: Everyone would like to see wheelchair dancing in Halifax as well as in summer camps! Let's do it! Please get in touch with us - we would like to bring more dance on wheels to Halifax!
I just wanted to say thank you for inviting me to be a part of such an incredible opportunity. I have always enjoyed watching people dance and have always wished I could be the one on the dance floor, and you and all of your fabulous volunteers gave me that opportunity... it was truly a dream come true for me! I had such a wonderful time meeting everyone and participating!
