Para Dance Classes

Ballroom Fit offer Para Dance classes for wheelchair users. Para Dance is an elegant and graceful sport involving athletes with a physical impairment that affects the lower limbs dancing in a wheelchair.

In our classes, we teach Ballroom and Latin dances including the Cha Cha Cha, Jive, Rumba, Samba and Waltz.

Para Dancing is a Paralympic Sport, governed by the International Paralympic Committee. This gives Ballroom Fit the opportunity to offer their students the ability to take part in local, national and international Para Dance competitions.

Why not come and have a dance with us, after all dancing is for everyone!

You may also send a request to like our private Facebook group Ballroom Fit Para Dance where further details will be posted, as well as motivational and inspiring dancing videos.
