Wakefield Trinity Disability Rugby League have an exciting partnership to announce.
Through Ambassadors, Keith Mason and Riona Kelly-Hawes, they were introduced Timestep Community Dance; a Charity who provide sessions for young people and adults with a disability or learning difficulty.
The sessions combine movement and Dance based activities to music to encourage agility, balance and co-ordination. Combining simple dance routines along with the use of equipment including ribbons, scarves, pom-poms and parachutes, the fun routines and activities are designed so that everyone can join in and have a good time.
The classes are suitable for everyone including wheelchair users and those with little mobility.
Moving forward, starting in June 2018, Timestep Community Dance will now be an official dance troupe of the Physical Disability Rugby League team and will perform at the Warrington Wolves PDRL fixture as part of the entertainment.
A young dancer, Leila, has Cerebral Palsy and will lead the two teams out onto the field when the clubs meet on the 17th June.
Rachel Walmsley, Principal of Timestep School of Dance, said, “We are delighted to be a part of the work Wakefield Trinity Community Trust are investing in the local community and particularly with disabled people who have limited access to sport and physical activity. We have a very similar philosophy and we can’t wait to perform at the game in June. It’s about creating opportunities and we are grateful to be a part of Disability Rugby League.”
We encourage both Wakefield Trinity and Warrington Wolves supporters to attend the PDRL game which kicks off at 1.15pm and show their support.
