We ran into Derrick Williamson, instructor for the American DanceWheels Foundation, at the Accessibility Day in San Jose back in August as he conducted a wheelchair dance demonstration. He's now recruiting dance partners for his upcoming wheelchair salsa workshop being held on Oct. 28th from 12:30-2:30 p.m. at the Bascom Community Center in San Jose. You'll learn how to dance salsa right from within your wheelchair, not only a fun event but also uplifting with the level of energy the accompanying music also helps create.
The Foundation is a national non-profit organization that teaches and promotes wheelchair ballroom dance. To take part in this class, you must RSVP in advance by contacting Derrick at firstname.lastname@example.org. Bascom Community Center is located at 1000 Bascom Community Center in San Jose.
