Uudenmaan pyörätuolitanssijat - Wheelchair Dance Club UP, is an active wheelchair dance sport club located in Helsinki, and it is a member of the Finnish Wheelchair Dance Federation. UP was established in December 2009.

We aim to provide high-quality teaching in wheelchair dancing around the whole Helsinki Metropolitan area. We teach Latin and Standard Ballroom as well as Finnish social dances in our groups, courses and camps. We also arrange special dance courses of different dance styles, e.g. bollywood, dance therapy, flamenco and voguing.

With us you can dance with ablebodied (combi) or wheelchair (duo) partner or without a partner as single or improve your social dancing skills in group dances.

We have a weekly schedule of classes at different levels during Autumn and Spring seasons at Katajanokka Sports Hall in Helsinki, address: Merikasarminkatu 1, 00160 Helsinki. Our Autumn 2018 season will start on Thursday, 6 September at 17:00. We teach students at all levels in all age groups; everyone is welcome to join our dance groups and camps!

Our teachers are all well trained with long experience in dance sports and enthusiasm to help you learn more. You can also invite us to perform in your event or work place. =)
