The 6 week course is one of many projects from SMILE funded by HAFLS. The residents supported by staff and family members learn a range of wheelchair dancing styles including the waltz, samba & jive, instructors are trained by WDSA UK and can teach up to competition standard. Those who are not in wheelchairs can join in too!
