Team GB prepare for the Para Dance Sport Mainhatten Cup 2018

Great Britain prepares for German Open

This weekend 19th-20th May sees the World Para Dance Sport Mainhatten Cup and German Open Championship take place in Frankfurt, Germany.

Team GB will be represented by members from Strictly Wheels who will be putting the final touches to their routines in class on Wednesday night.

Gary and Paula will be competing in the Mainhatten Cup in Combi Latin.  This will be their first competition since the World Championships last October in Belgium following injury.

Paula says “It will be a test of our fitness getting back onto the floor with not as much training as we would have hoped, but making sure injuries are healed is more important”.  They are also preparing for a new classification to determine which category they will compete in for the year.

Club members will also be hoping to repeat medal success in the German Open Championship in Debutante Combi Class 1.

Goz and Lloyd, who took Silver Medal recently at the Dutch Open will take to the floor again.

The Mainhatten Cup is one of the largest Wheelchair Dance competitions in the annual calendar.  The competition should see competitors coming together to be able to qualify for the European Championships in November in Poland.
