Just like the valid dancing, the wheelchair dancers have several category’s. On this moment we have several criteria’s who made the final category.
In the combi a valid dancer is dancing with a wheelchair dancer.
Two wheelchair dancers are dancing together.
Dancers with limited hand/shoulder function (also electric wheelchair dancers)
amateurs/ selection class:
In the competition there is also a difference in dancing level.
In the Netherlands
it is allowed that in beginners/amateurs, couples can be formed by woman/woman;
men/men, and in the duo also wheelchair dancer/valid dancer (dancing in a wheelchair).
In the selection class duo are only two wheelchair dancers with a minimal handicap (you cannot dance in the valid dancing) and also man/woman allowed.
In the selection class combi it need to be man/woman.
