Wheelchair Ballroom Dancing

TV coverage of wheelchair ballroom dancing at American Dance Wheels is shown in this video sent to me by a reader. (Thank you Ed!) It shows a couple who are champion ballroom dancers, one of whom uses a chair. It talks about classes for wheelchair dancers and how it affects all of the dancers.

Inclusion? Wow. Now that's exciting.

Here's a list of events from the American Dance Wheels site:
