Wheel keep on dancing in Weymouth
12:00pm Friday 18th April 2014 in News
THE wheels are turning for an exciting new activity in Weymouth.
Wheel Keep Dancing holds ballroom, Latin and freestyle dance classes for wheelchair users and those with restricted mobility.
A free taster event will take place at Redlands Community Hub in Weymouth on April 25.
Organiser Glenn Bayliss said: “Having a disability shouldn’t stop anyone participating or enjoying a sport or leisure activity.
“Wheelchair dancing unites disabled and able-bodied people in dance.
“As someone who has a disability I am passionate about getting wheelchair users dancing and we at Wheel Keep Dancing believe that anyone can dance regardless of their disability.”
Glenn Bayliss and Angie Golding who are qualified wheelchair dance instructors and members of the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association UK, will be holding the taster event to give people the opportunity to see what they can achieve.
There will also be an opportunity for people to try it themselves along with friends, family or carers.
Anybody of any age is welcome to attend the event and admission is free.
It takes place on Friday, April 25 between 1.30pm to 3pm at Redlands Community Sports Hub, Dorchester Road, Weymouth. Weekly classes will begin on Friday, May 2, also from 1.30pm, at Redlands.
