Some years ago I saw a display in the Younger Hall by a group called (I
think) the Fife Wheelchair Dancers. They were totally self-propelled - no
ablebodied pushers - and very impressive indeed in their mobility and
capacity to express the spirit of the dances (SCD, of course, and the
faster the better!)
I can't remember very much detail, but I do have a contact phone number -
I'll send it off-list to anyone interested.
