Thameside Wheelchair Dancing

Please Visit Our News Blog Where you can also see some great videos of James in Malta!


Thameside , based in Southend on Sea, is working to promote wheelchair dancing under the aims and objectives of the Wheelchair Dance Association (WDA) and the Wheelchair Dance Sport Association UK (WDSA UK).

At present we run a weekly afternoon group of mixed abilities and an after school club at a school for children with disabilities. Some people are unable to take part without the help of their carers, but enjoy the opportunity to take part in a new activity and enjoy the music. The school club demonstrates at school functions and takes part in inter school dance and music activities. Both groups enjoy Ballroom, Latin American, Sequence and social dancing.

We give talks and demonstrations at care homes, day centres and associations in the area and are willing to travel to Counties adjacent to Essex. With a little help you could start a new group in your own area.
