The class will be taught by American DanceWheels Foundation certified instructor, Derrick Williamson. A lifelong wheelchair user, Derrick has seven years of experience teaching ballroom dance. He performed in the closing ceremonies of the 2015 PanAmerican games and is a regular guest lecturer in the Department of Dance at CSUEB and in the Department of Kinesiology at SJSU.
