Dance Mobility – Wheelchair Ballroom Dancing

At Fred Astaire Bloomfield Hills we believe everyone has the ability to experience the joy of dancing. This philosophy led to the establishment of Dance Mobility; Michigan’s only wheelchair ballroom dancing program for adults and children with physical disabilities. Our Dance Mobility program provides free monthly wheelchair ballroom group lessons, led by Fred Astaire’s professional, certified dance instructors with experience in teaching wheelchair ballroom dancing. Participants are welcome to bring their own dance partner or they will be paired with a partner. From Waltz to Tango to Salsa, we offer all styles of dance lessons in a fun, friendly, supportive environment, while promoting physical, social, and emotional well-being.  Private lessons are also available for a fee. Dance Mobility’s free group lessons are supported by a grant from the Rehabilitation Institute of Michigan Foundation.  For more information call 248-454-1715.
