One of our first and most successful activities was to start a Wheelchair Dance class.

As a result of our ‘Into Sport’ Project we applied for seed funding from Lambeth Council’s Legacy fund to start a Wheelchair Dance Class.  We were successful and “Wheel Be Dancing” opened its doors on 13th January 2015.  The class was very successful both for Physically Disabled People and for people with Learning Disabilities. It was taught by DASL’s previous Into Sport Worker, Tricia Reilly.

Wheel Be Dancing performed for the first time on 12 May 2015 at the project’s official launch event at the London South Bank University.  More recently they performed at the Liberty Festival held at the Olympic park on Sunday 26 July 2015 National Paralympic Day. 

The class is not currently operating but please contact us if you are interested in getting involved in this enjoyable and rewarding activity.
