Wheelchair Dance Classes
Wheelchair Dance Classes run each week on Wednesday evenings.
Wheelchair Dance Classes are currently FREE! Classes start at 7.00pm-8.30pm each week.
Wheelchair Dance Classes are open to both wheelchair users and standing dancers to dance with wheelchair users as long as you are over 12 years old.
You don’t need any dance experience to join in, our wheelchair dance classes are fun and enjoyable.
You don’t need a special wheelchair, your own manual or power chair is suitable for basic wheelchair dance. We do have some wheelchairs available to use too. So all you need to bring is yourself and we recommend you bring a drink – like water as you might be surprised how thirsty work dancing is! If you need personal care, or unable to propel yourself in a manual chair or power chair, you should bring your carer/personal assistant with you, they can assist you to take part.
Wheelchair dance is great exercise for both the body and mind and dances are adapted to suit your ability, it’s not about what you can’t do, it’s about what you can do. Wheelchair Dancing is great way to improve your day to day wheelchair skills.
If you have a flair for dancing and want to go on to compete then we’ll make sure you learn dances suitable for competitions.
Each class is followed by 30 minute practice session for competition dancers.
The Wheelchair Dance Classes are led by our founders, Paula and Gary who are both qualified wheelchair dance instructors in the UK and have several years experience of social and competitive wheelchair dancing.
Classes are held at Trinity Sports Centre (Trinity High School), Cambridge Street, Manchester M15 6HP. You can get directions from the map below. There is ample parking at the rear of the school accessed from Boundary Lane.
