Dancing for those with visual impairment or who are blind

Dance Haddonfield, the Delaware Valley chapter of USA Dance, working with the Haddonfield Lions Club, has initiated a program to bring ballroom dance to those with visual impairment or who are blind (“visually impaired”) We have learned that the two terms are different, but we use the short form just for convenience here.  For outreach purposes, however, both terms must be used to reach both groups.  We want to share with USA Dance and other chapters what we have learned, and to offer to assist others in this means of bringing joy and a healthy pastime to the visually impaired.  Click here to read more

Our prototype initiative to bring the joy of ballroom dance to people who are blind or visually impaired got some press. See "Dancing to the rhythm of the beat" published in the Sun newspapers about the inspiration and successful first implementation of our 10-week dance program.

This program was so successful that we instituted a free workshop for dance instructors which took place at the Grace Church on September 10, 2023.  For more information, click here

DANCE HADDONFIELD IN THE NEWS

The American Dancer magazine, the official publication of USA Dance Inc., has an interesting article about our sponsored lessons for Blind and Visually Impaired Dancers.  Read all about it and check out the photos on https://americandancer.org/blind-dancers/

It would also help us spread the word if you could share this on your social media.

INTERESTING

We received the following email in response to our website:

"I wanted to get in touch to send a quick thank you note. I volunteer with a children's program at my local library, and right now the kids are working on fun projects about their favorite thing to do! One of the kiddos, Rylee, was doing hers on Dance and when she was doing research online she ended up on the Dance Haddonfield website.. It turned out to be a great find! She was able to get some excellent info and she decided that we needed to reach out and say thanks - so here we are LOL thank you!

And together we also picked out another educational dance page to share with you, to repay the favor...

WE ARE DANCING

COME AND JOIN US EVERY SUNDAY EVENING 

At the Grace Church, on the 2nd floor

19 East Kings Highway E

Haddonfield, NJ 08033

(Click on Directions Tab Above)

WE NEVER CLOSE EXCEPT FOR SEVERE INCLEMENT WEATHER (and CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR).

FOR OUR SPORTS FANATICS, DANCE HADDONFIELD SETS UP A TELEVISION IN THE DINING ROOM

We have two 45-minute lessons.  The intermediate class starts at 6:00 PM followed by the beginner lesson from 6:45 to 7:30 PM.  Our intermediate classes change every month and are taught by professional dance instructors. 

There is a different beginner lesson every week, and so if you come 10 weeks in a row, then you will know the basics of 10 different ballroom dances.

Following the classes, we have 2 1/2 hours of open dancing (7:30 to 10pm), and of course there will be snacks, deserts, beverages and copious amounts of Chinese food.

The price is $10.00 unless you want to take the intermediate lesson which will be an additional $5.00.  This amount is paid directly to the professional dance teacher.  We no longer discount the entry fee for USA Dance members.

Below is the schedule of the dance classes for the next few weeks - subject to change if need be.  

All intermediate classes are taught by dance instructors.  All beginner classes are taught by George Davis, except when he is not available.  In that case, the intermediate class teacher will teach that dance.

$$$ We want you to dance for free $$$

Anyone who brings a newcomer to Dance Haddonfield will get two free gift passes for future dances. The newcomer also gets a free pass for their next entrance. If you have enough friends, you'll never have to pay again... [The intermediate lesson is not included in the free pass - it is an extra $5 paid directly to the instructor.]

LOTTERY TICKETS

Every week, we buy two tickets. If we win big, the $$$ will be shared with everyone who signed in legibly at the previous dance. For example, if we win $1 billion and 60 people signed in [30 members, 30 non-members], then each non-member gets $11+ million and each USA Dance member gets 22+ million. What?? 

All verified USA Dance members get double shares when we win. You don't need to be a member to attend the dance but it could pay off big time! Consider joining: we are the USA Dance DelVal (Delaware Valley) Chapter 3012. There are paper applications at the dance or you can join online (see link at the top of the page on the left.)

If you are a member, proudly mark your name on the sign in sheet with an asterisk (*). (We will still check, of course.)

Note: if we win less than $100 bucks, we keep it to defray expenses and also because it is not very exciting to track you all down to hand over 60 cents.
