Dancing Wheels is a physically integrated dance company uniting the talents of dancers both with and without disabilities. The Company was founded in 1980 by Mary Verdi-Fletcher, the first professional wheelchair dancer in the United States.  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.
