“The joy expressed and the camaraderie that develops between all the walkers and rollers is emotionally inspiring. We who are not disabled are humbled when we see how those in the chairs improve and persevere. We see the person—not the wheelchair or disability.”

– Dorothy Howard, Volunteer Walker –

How You Can Make a Difference

Everyone has a unique perspective, talents and skills. When you share your ideas, gifts and expertise, you foster positive effects in your community and create a new dimension in your life and the lives you touch.

WDO is grateful to all the big-hearted volunteers—individuals of all ages and backgrounds— who give generously of themselves to make a difference by changing lives through dance.

We thank our loyal volunteers and wheelchair dancers who participate in our dance programs throughout the year. There is always a need for more wheelchair users and volunteers who partner with them. No experience is necessary. Our professional dance instructor teaches the dance styles to everyone.

This is a partial list of the areas where WDO often needs volunteer help:

  • Dance Partners and Wheelchair Users (Manual and Motorized)
  • Qualified Adaptive Dance Instructors
  • Administrative/Technical (assist with website, newsletter, social media and other tasks)
  • Photographer and Videographer
  • Media Outreach
  • Seamstress
  • Costume Design
  • Internships in Marketing, Public Relations, Sponsorship
  • Annual Event Chair Positions: Marketing, Sponsorship, Silent Auction, Volunteers, Decorations

“I often sit in the wheelchair to understand what a less able-bodied person goes through. I love the music, the instructor, meeting and socializing with other volunteers and wheelchair dancers.”
