Ways to Give

Welcome to Our Website!

American DanceWheels Foundation (ADF) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that teaches Wheelchair Ballroom and Latin Dance.

Wheelchair dancing integrates people with and without physical disabilities and can be enjoyed by people of all ages and ability levels. American DanceWheels created the first American style wheelchair dance syllabus, Wheel One™. Our organization promotes wheelchair dancing through lessons, educational seminars and performances in dance studios, schools, and rehabilitation facilities across the country.

What They Say!

"It is through ongoing programs such as yours that enable us to provide positive experiences that promote the children's development and make their hospital stay more enjoyable."

Quote from Stacy Redelheim, Special Events Coordinator at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia

"The integration aspect is what I really like about ADF.”

Quote from Eric Laufenberg

"After watching your performances over the last couple of years, my awareness of people using wheelchairs has changed."

Quote from Pat Klein

"ADF opens new doors and begins new chapters for people through music."

Quote from Leona Gutherman

Programs for Veterans

ADF partners with veteran hospitals to provide social dance lessons and events to soldiers of all ages. This effort benefits the participants' physical and psychological health and combats the complications associated with PTSD.

A study conducted by the Palo Alto VA concluded that ADF's Wheel One™ Program improved participants' range of motion, speed, balance, strength, mood, and more. Read more about it here.
