Welcome to UK Wheelchairs - the home of value and quality

Strictly Wheelchair Dancing comes to town

Strictly Wheelchair Dancing is a Manchester based dance group including folk of all ages and abilities whose motto is “You can do it”!

Using both electric or manual wheelchairs, the club welcomes everyone regardless of their ability or their disability as they put it.

Wheelchair Dancesport is becoming more popular thanks to clubs like this and involves individuals with a physical disability that affects the lower limbs. Having said that you wouldn't believe what they can do.

Wheelchair dancers as they are known can participate in “combi” style dancing with an able-bodied (standing) partner or “duo” style dancing where two wheelchair users dance together.

Sticking to a fairly conventional menu,wheelchair dances include the Waltz, Tango, Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot and Quickstep. Latin-American dances include the Samba, Cha-cha-cha, Rumba, Paso Doble and Jive. There is even Group Formation Dancing for 4, 6 or 8 couples at a time.

So a bit of fact about this sport / art: Wheelchair Dancesport became an IPC Championship Sport in 1998 but is not yet part of the Paralympic programme. It is governed by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) and co-ordinated by the IPC Wheelchair Dancesport Technical Committee, which incorporates the rules of the International Dance Sport Federation (IDSF).

Wheelchair Dance Sport is widely practised by athletes in 22 countries. Read more here
