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.
