Summer Wheelchair Dance Classes 2018

We are changing the times for our wheelchair dance classes from Wednesday 11th July.

The new class time will start at 7pm til 8.30pm.

Weekly classes feature a mix of social, fun dances for everyone to learn and take part and also dances for competition with teaching of technique and individual routines.

Each week we also have a practice session from 8.30pm-9pm for competition dancers.  The practice session only features music for competition dances and there will not be any tuition for this session.  Dancers will be able to practice on their own.

 

Holidays

We’ll be taking a some breaks during the summer months to relax and enjoy some much needed time out.

NO classes are held on the following weeks:

18th July

8th August

15th August

29th August

All other weeks there will be class as usual.  We’ll be back full time every week from September getting ready for the UK National Championships in October.

Full details of classes can be found here.

 

Fundraiser – 300ft bungee jump!

Our co-founder Gary is taking a leap of faith, literally, as he plunges from a crane to do a 300ft bungee jump to raise funds for Strictly Wheels.

The 300ft bungee jump, the equivalent of leaping off a 20-storey building, is the highest in the UK!

Gary is looking for sponsors and you can donate to us online here – make sure you Gift Aid if you are a UK Tax Payer – this adds a whopping 25% to your donation!

The bungee jump is taking place over the lake at Tatton Park, Cheshire on Saturday 14th July.  Anyone is welcome to come along and watch.  (There are parking charges at Tatton Park.)

Keep an eye on our social media channels for updates on the fundraising and from the jump on the day!  We’ll even “Go live” to watch!

All the funds raised will go to support our charity which aims to promote wheelchair and Para Dance in the UK and our local class in Manchester.  Our core aim is to keep our classes FREE so those on limited income can still enjoy free classes.  We also support dancers aiming to compete in the UK and internationally to achieve their goals.
