Combi masterclass with Strictly Wheels

Posted on March 8, 2019

Worlds Freestyle Full

Learn the basic techniques of ballroom and Latin Combi dance – performed by a wheelchair user and standing partner – with the UK’s top Para Dance Sport couple Paula Moulton and Gary Lyness, and international coach, Accursio Romeo.

The masterclass on April 7 at Romeo Dance Academy in Milton Keynes will cover the internationally recognised debutante competitive dances – the English waltz, quickstep and samba.

Open to manual wheelchair users, who are able to self-propel, the class is ideal for those with some experience, but beginners are welcome, too. Standing dancers, however, must be able to dance basic figures in each dance.

No partner is required for this class in which dancers will be paired on the day. However, tickets and place must be booked in advance. Places are limited and allow an even spread of wheelchair users and standing dancers.

The masterclass runs from 1pm to 3pm. Tickets cost £15 and hot and cold drinks are available to purchase at the dance studio on the day.
