What is Handilab? Handilab is a group of Handicapable Callers within the US Handicapable Square Dance Assoication that established and maintains the Handicapable (Handilab) Call Lists for use at the US Handicapable Square Dance Conventions they sponsor. Handicapable clubs like Michelle's Jacobs follow the Handilab's Basic List.
What is the US Handicapable Square Dance Association? They not only sponsor the US Handicapable Square Dance Conventions, but as stated, they try "to keep square dancing alive for the fun of it" for the population of dancers they support. Most of their dancers are mentally challenged people from young adults to senior citizens. They also have wheelchair clubs of non-mentally challenged adults who have come to their conventions and remain in close contact with the association. Family, friends, and other interested people also provide support and participate in the association and the dancers activities.
ATTENTION: I'm looking for handicapable non-dancers or dancers (such as mentally challenged teens & adults) and handicapable clubs to promote, to teach and to call dances for! It's not a matter of making money for me, but I want to encourage recreation and wellness through square dancing for all people. So, call, write, or e-mail me if you or your handicapable group would like to start a dance program. :-)
