Note: Sometimes I have had someone come into my class who used to be a dancer but has had a stroke or was even in a wheelchair. My heart goes out to any dancer who no longer can dance! This dance was created for absolute beginners, but is flexible enough for those who might be physically challenged too. It can easily be adjusted to a 1, 2 or 4 wall dance depending on the abilities of the students.
