During the Easter weekend of 2017 the Open Dutch with the World Cup Wheelchairdancing are hosted during the Holland Dans Spektakel in Cuijk. Also the World Para Dance Sport International Competition of the International Paralympic Comitee will be held during this weekend. Recreational or topsport, for each level a competition. Accessible for everyone. Tickets are available at the door for only € 15,-.
Corrie van Hugten and Hans Verhoeven joined their ambitions in 1989 by organizing an event where disabled dancers and abled dancers can participate as equal partners. Wheelchairdancing was growing tremendously in Holland and so were the annual competitions in Cuijk. It became a platform for international development in wheelchairdancing. Danceteachers from other countries who were known for their initiative skills were invited to the event to become more acquainted with wheelchairdancing. After widen this knowledge in their home country, many disabled children found pleasure in wheelchairdancing. This concept turned out to be very succesful. More than twenty countries are now participating in the World Cup wheelchairdancing in Cuijk. The amount of competitors and participating countries is still growing.
Noteworthy were the trips to Washington by invitation of the youngest member of the famous Kennedy family Mrs. Jean Kennedy for ‘Very Special Art’.
Also the demonstration during the birthdayparty for Mr. Nelson Mandela in Pietermartizburg will be remembered. This party was dedicated to disabled children from underprivileged regions. After Corrie teached these children the Macarena, she handed over (unanounced) a birthday present to Mr. Nelson Mandela. You can imagine the hilarious commotion with the security.
Anyway, we are looking forward to see all of you again for our 29th edition!
