“Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the U.S., founded the Dancing Wheels Company in Cleveland in 1980. Born with spina bifida, Mary wanted to offer others with disabilities full and equal access into the world of dance. An almost unimaginable concept at the time, Mary’s vision and passion have since helped to revolutionize our very notion of dance – as well as what defines a dancer.”
I have had the opportunity to help the Dancing Wheels Company develop their online virtual classroom solution. I’ve advised on audio and video and developed means for them to distribute their training videos online.
