Founded in 1988, in Mobile, Al, with the First US Handicapable Square Dance Convention, in Chickasaw, AL, a Mobile, AL suburb, the USH has strived to improve with each new USH Convention. Our conventions are held every other year, which helps member clubs two years for fundraising, so they can travel to each USH Convention.
We are made up of dance groups throughout the United States, and our goal is to inspire and share our love of dance with our members.
Handicapable Dancers are dancers who may have developmental disabilities, may have autism, may have cerebral palsy or any other disability. Handicapable Square Dancers may be dancers in wheelchairs who do not have any developmental disabilities. These wonderful dancers love square dancing as much as we do, they just may need a little more time to dance the steps. Don’t get me wrong! Handicapable Square Dancers have MANY abilities!! There are dancers who can dance Basic, Mainstream, Plus, Advance and even Challenge!
We are always looking for more Handicapable Square Dance Groups that we do not have contact information for. If you are aware of any clubs out there, or would like to start a group, feel free to contact us.
