Month: September 2015
The IPC Wheelchair Dance Sport Continents Cup 2015 takes place this weekend 5th-6th September.
The event which is the largest IPC Wheelchair Dance Sport competition in the calendar, ahead of the World Championships, will see dancers from at least 21 worldwide countries meet in St Petersburg, Russia.
Athletes will compete in the standard Ballroom and Latin categories as well as the new Singles and Freestyle events which, given previous years entries, will no doubt prove very exciting to watch. Former routines have wowed the judges particularly in the Group Freestyle events. Russia itself has dominated the event in previous years, so we are looking forward with anticipation to see the results from the weekend as a forerunner to the World Championships.
Unfortunately, Great Britain will not be represented this year due to lack of funding available to athletes in the UK so we are unable to send a team.
Wheelchair Dance Sport at this level is still not recognised so it is difficult to find funding and sponsors. We are still hoping for funding and sponsorship so that Team GB will be able to compete at the upcoming World Championships in Rome.
