The Choughs Wheelchair Dance Team
from Cornwall

We are small in number but big in success

The Choughs Wheelchair Dance Team was formed in 1970 to provide therapy combined with a social activity and recreation in which disabled people could take part.

 The object then as now was to help to improve physical co-ordination and reproduce the art of dance with participants in wheelchairs rather than on their feet. A wide range of dances are used from old time, ballroom, disco, modern pop and anything in between.

The list of tunes danced to include 

Have You Ever    S Club 7                    I Don't Feel Like Dancing    Scissor Sisters

I Hope You'll Dance   Ronan Keating    Mocking Bird   Katie Melua

The Choughs wear yellow polo shirts and black trousers for "demos" but the Cornish Hunting tartan for competitions.  This consists of a tartan waistcoat for the gents and a tartan long skirt for the ladies, both with matching accessories.Appearances are reflected in the judging. 

Our Coach is Margaret Oliver who (among others) choreographs the majority of our dances.
