About the Beacons
Welcome to the Beacons Wheelchair Dancers website. We are a registered charity providing wheelchair dancing in Torbay Devon.
The Beacons were formed in 1986, and membership currently stands at 40. We believe that anyone can dance, regardless of any disability that he or she may have. If you need a little help to push your wheelchair then we believe you should have that help. If you want to dance with your zimmer frame, then come along and dance with it. In fact, anyone is welcome. We have no age restriction or any restrictions of any kind.
We are a fun group, and the emphasis on dance night is enjoyment. We do all forms and styles of dance from Ballroom and Latin American through to Formation and Sequence, from Line Dance to Limbo (if you want!). We are often found demonstrating our dancing to groups both indoors and outside in the lovely sea air.
