Wheelchair Dance Program has a New Name and Location!

Wheelchair dance

It’s been three months since our wheelchair dance pilot and what a ride it has been (no pun intended)! We’ve selected a new name and have a new location! We still have a long way to go in developing the program and growing our membership but the impact on each participant, volunteer and instructor to date has been transformational. Here is a blurb from one of our members Alexis:

“When I first started the Wheelchair Dance Program I must admit I was a little nervous. I didn’t really know what to expect. However, my fears were put to rest very quickly.Everyone in the group is very friendly and inviting. Since I’ve started, I have never felt out of place. Our dance instructor Olena is very knowledgeable and is great at teaching us. She is very patient. She never seems to mind going over things again if we don’t understand something.We all understand that we learn at different paces and that is okay. That is what makes this group successful. We all understand each other’s strengths and weaknesses and we all know we learn different ways. I hope this program goes on for a very long time!”

New Name

Our new name as created and selected by our members is:

Equal Grounds Emerging Performance Arts Collective
The thinking behind this name is because not only are the members interested in the dancing, they are also interested in the social aspects and other forms of arts where we have integrated improv and theatrical activities and meditation.
New Location
Our new location is:
341 Bloor Street West, Toronto, Ontario (also known as the Senator D. Croll Apartments)
