Zumba dance craze now attracts wheelchairs !
I was amazed when i watched Beacons Wheelchair Dancers to see just how mobile and graceful wheelchair dancing can be. If you want to see it for yourself, they are performing at this year’s ‘Zumbathon' which is being held on Saturday the 9th of April at the Zumba Party of the Year at the Derwent Hotel, Belgrave Road, Torquay.
The Beacons was formed 25 years ago and currently has 40 very active members. The Beacons motto is that they believe that anyone can dance, regardless of any disability that he or she may have. In addition to wheelchair dancers, Beacon welcome anyone along and have some members who attend with walking frames and Zimmer frames. Members of all ages attend their regular meetings at The Sports Hall, South Devon College, Vantage Point, Long Rd, Paignton.
Everyone is welcome along to the Zumbathon including you !If you need a little help to push your wheelchair then it can be arranged. It is all aimed at having fun regardless of any disability. The Zumbathon is just one example of how many wheelchair users get stuck in and help themselves and others as they help to raise much needed funds for Families for Children Adoption Agency.
