The Dancing Wheels Company advocates disability awareness

Dancing Wheels Company coming to Penn State Berks
Dancing Wheels Company
Recognized today as one of the premier arts and disabilities organizations in the country, the Dancing Wheels Company will perform at Penn State Berks on Wednesday, October 17, 2012, at 8 p.m. in Perkins Student Center Auditorium. This event is free and open to the public.

Audiences have been inspired and amazed by the Dancing Wheels Company, a professional, physically integrated dance company, which unites the talents of dancers with and without disabilities. Featured on CNN and Good Morning America, the Company was founded by Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the United States. Her goal was to offer individuals with disabilities full and equal access to the world of dance. Today, the Dancing Wheels Company travels the world, advocating disability awareness through messages of inclusion and accessibility, while expanding the reach of artistic possibilities and celebrating the universal spirit of dance.

This presentation is part of the Penn State Berks Arts and Lecture series and is being held in conjunction with Disability Awareness Month. For more information, contact the Office of Campus Life at 610-396-6076.
