We are a group of disabled dancers who are competing at National Para Dance Championships in October. We are raising funds to purchase 2 specialist dance chairs as well as help towards costs of travel and accommodation. We will also be holding a fundraising Quiz night to help towards these costs and if you would like to bring along a team further details will be available on our FaceBook Page
What we'll deliver:
Why it's a great idea:
Wheelchair dancing is a wonderful way of encouraging people with limited mobility to keep fit as well as boosting self confidence and giving them a sense of achievement. It also offers an avenue to meet other people in similar situations and builds friendships amongst the group. It can also be used in a therapeutic way to improve wheelchair skills, Improve health and wellbeing and help people come to terms with their disabilities and a sneaky way to do their stretches!
Steps to get it done:
We have 18 dancers with various levels of disabilities. 11 of these dancers are competing this year. Last year we competed with 5 dancers and came home with 3 Gold, 1 Silver and 1 Bronze Medals. This year we would like to improve on this and the wheelchairs will give us the opportunity to enhance the dancing.
