Do you wanna dance? PS: Wheelchair required!
Disability Sports Australia made the following announcement this week and we are super excited to see the Aussies get into the groove!
Wheelchair Dance Sport is looking for dancers, studios and officials to participate in this new and exciting sport both socially and competitively. No experience required! Wheelchair Dance Sport is a Paralympic recognised sport for people with a physical impairment that affects the lower limbs. Dancers can participate as singles, duos (two wheelchair users) or combi (wheelchair user with able bodied partner) in competitive ballroom dancing in styles such as Standard, Latin and Freestyle.
Wheelchair Dance Sport is competed internationally with World Championships and Asian Championships held every two years.
