Wheelchair dancing is a growing competition sport and social activity for the disabled, ABLEize first started building this section back in 2006 with just two sites available on the entire Internet, it’s pleasing to see that wheelchair dancing is growing in the UK and throughout the world and getting more publicity due to sites like this one. Wheelchair dancing can be a recreational hobby, exercise or sport or just a way for disabled people to enjoy themselves.
This section includes wheelchair dance clubs and organisations within the UK with details of competitions and events, how to go along, give it a try and who knows maybe you will be the next major wheelchair dancing competition winner.
