This weekend 17th-18th June sees the World Para Dance Sport Mainhatten Cup and German Open Wheelchair Dance 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 and Freestyle.  Paula will also take to the floor in Ladies Singles.  This will be their last competition prior to the World Championships in October in Belgium.

Thanks to funding efforts, club members will also travel to Frankfurt to compete in the German Open Championship.  Their first time in an international competition in the Debutante sections in both Combi Class 1 and Duo Class 1.

Goz and Lloyd, the reigning UK Debutante Combi 1 Champions are aiming high to beat off the international competition and their rivals (and friends) Patricia and Oscar who took the silver medal at the UK Championships.

Goz also teams with Oscar to take the floor in the Debutante Duo 1 hoping to build on their success as Gold medallists at the UK Championships.

The Mainhatten Cup is proving to be one of the largest Wheelchair Dance competitions in the annual calendar and should see many competitors coming together to be able to qualify for the World Championships.
