St. Bonaventure University will host a dance performance by Ballroom Accessible and Let’s Dance Rochester on Wednesday, Oct. 12, in the Rigas Theater of the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.
The event runs from 6 to 7:30 p.m. After each dancer’s performance, there will be a brief discussion about the performer’s interest in dance.
Ballroom Accessible is a local not-for-profit that focuses on expanding dance education for people traditionally excluded from dancing, including those who use wheelchairs and with other mobility and health issues.
Let’s Dance Rochester, an inclusive studio that emphasizes learning dance at one’s individual pace, is the first school in the Greater Rochester area to offer wheelchair dancing.
Tickets for the general public are $10 and available at the door or in advance by calling the Quick Center at 375-2494.
The performance is free to the St. Bonaventure community, although donations are graciously accepted.
The event is sponsored by the SBU Disability Awareness Committee and is part of this academic year’s series of activities titled “A Kaleidoscope of Abilities & Uniqueness.”
