- The 2014 Continents Cup will take place from 11-17 September in St. Petersburg, Russia.It will be the biggest IPC Wheelchair Dance Sport competition of the year.Wheelchair dance sport is an extremely elegant, graceful and stylish sport which involves athletes with a physical impairment that affects the lower limbs.Participants can compete “combi” style, dancing with an able bodied (standing) partner, or duo dance for two wheelchair users together. Group dance involves wheelchair users only or together with able-bodied partners whereas single dance sees a wheelchair user dance alone.Standard dances include waltz, tango, Viennese waltz, slow foxtrot and quickstep.Latin American dances include the samba, cha-cha-cha, rumba, paso doble and jive.There are also Formation dances for four, six or eight couples dancing in formation.Since 1998 the sport has been governed by the IPC and co-ordinated by the IPC Wheelchair Dance Sport Technical Committee which incorporates the rules of the International Dance Sport Federation (IDSF). The sport is not part of the summer Paralympic Games sports programme.In recent years the sport has benefitted greatly from the screening of popular dance based TV shows such as Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing with the Stars.The International Paralympic Committee (IPC) is the global governing body of the Paralympic Movement, and also acts as the International Federation for nine sports, including wheelchair dance sport. The sport is governed by the IPC and co-ordinated by the IPC Wheelchair Dance Sport Sports Technical Committee.For further information, please visit www.paralympic.org/wheelchair-dance-sport www.facebook.com/IPCwheelchairdancesport or www.ParalympicSport.TV.
