We are pleased to say our Saturday classes are growing from strength to strength. We have almost 30 members some weeks, amazing to consider when we started out with a core membership of about 10 people.
The majority of our members are wheelchair users both electric and manual who dance together in “Duo” format with 2 dancers in wheelchairs. Our ages range from 18 to 80! and there are many different abilities. Some members attend with their carers who push them.
Dances include Popular Sequence Dances, individual dances and the more traditional ballroom waltz, quickstep or latin samba! So there is something for everyone.
One of our most recent members said of their first day, “I’ve just had my first ever Wheelchair Dancing Experience at Wythenshawe. It was absolutely fantastic. A great bunch of folk, and I’m definitely coming back for more!”
Classes run each Saturday at Woodhouse Park Lifestyle Centre from 11am to 1pm and new members are always welcome, just pop along to see what we do.
