FreeWheelin Dance Group are Birmingham’s first wheelchair dance class in association with the Wheelchair Dance Sports Association (WDSA). Helen Mason is a qualified wheelchair dance instructor and runs sessions at both Cerebral Palsy Midlands weekly on Thursdays and also runs sessions in the local community. 
 
Dance is hugely beneficial for whole body wellbeing. Firstly it is a good work out improving stamina, flexibility and strength of the muscles but it also develops memory, coordination, and spatial awareness and builds team work whilst participants enjoy the social interaction with the rest of the group. Dance also releases endorphins which are the body’s happy hormone which leaves participants feeling good afterwards, this in turn aids metal health especially for those with anxiety or depression. 
 
Classes that take place at Cerebral Palsy Midlands are every Thursday between 10.00am and 12.00pm. 
 
Classes are Friday’s 6.30pm till 7.30pm at Saint Gabriel’s Community Centre, Weoley Castle. B29 5LS.
