Victoria is proud to bring this groundbreaking Integrated Dance Workshop and Certification to Southern California. Mary Verdi-Fletcher and Mark Tomasic from Dancing Wheels Company will give participants the necessary tools on how to become an integrated dance instructor and studio owner, taking the mystery and fear out of teaching the disabled and mobility impaired.
