Anonymous answer about dancing with canes

Speaking as a square dance and Scottish folk dance person…there have been people at my groups who’ve used canes while dancing, and others with limited mobility for other reasons. You adapt as best you can, and a friendly group will adapt right along with you. A good teacher, if you give them a heads-up, will be able to work with you in your particular mobility range to adapt steps and perhaps choose a good repertoire that accommodates you. You wouldn’t necessarily be doing fast dances or fancy footwork but participating in box step type stuff, especially in a group where you’re a regular, shouldn’t be a problem.
