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. Our online and physical  Para Dance classes are for solo dancers, so no partner is required.

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 Para Dance competitions.  

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

You may dance with us live, in the safety and convenience of your own home via Zoom by sending an expression of interest email to info@ballroomfit.com.au. Ballroom Fit will them send you an email with the Zoom link, meeting id and password.

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

Lyn Stewart

DanceSport is intense. It requires focus, persistence, patience, problem solving, physical and mental endurance. I want to explore new dances and continue to ask myself, what else can this chair do?
