Wheelchair Dancing at Fred Astaire Dance Studio

Metro Detroiters Cheryl Angelelli and Tamerlan Gadirov recently captured the silver medal in the free-style category at the Mainhatten Cup competition in Frankfurt, Germany, and are currently ranked third in the world. 

The pair have been working together for roughly a year at Fred Astaire Dance Studio in Bloomfield Hills, which has one of the only wheelchair ballroom dance programs in the country, and the only one in Michigan.

They stopped by the Fox2 News Studios Sunday morning to talk about their journey and performed original choreography to "(I've Had) The Time of my Life," the final ballad from the film the Dirty Dancing soundtrack.
