The feet of nine adult dancers are in a circle. They are wearing a variety of sizes and types of casual shoes, boots, socks with a cloud pattern, and running shoes. 5 people have just one shoe visible pointing to the middle, and 3 people have both their feet resting on the foot rests of their wheelchairs.You are warmly invited to join upcoming opportunities to dance, including the Creative Movers (an all abilities, mostly 55+, dance group). This autumn there is also an all abilities dance group at a local organization, and a women’s dance group for people who are refugees and newcomers.
