A new partnership between Workpower, City of Belmont and Ballroom Fit will provide more than 45 opportunities for people with disability to take on ballroom dancing for six weeks.
The ability classes will promote self-expression and encourage dancers to express themselves to music in a fun and supportive way.
Workpower CEO Lee Broomhall said it is an exciting partnership which will increase opportunities for people with disability to participate in the wider community.
“Local partnerships that benefit people with disability and Workpower’s customers are extremely important to us, and we’re thrilled to be partnering with the City of Belmont and Ballroom Fit,” said Lee.
