PARA DANCE SPORT EDUCATION 

World Para Dance Sport works with a number of global education partners and organisations in order to develop and grow the sport


With the continued growth of World Para Dance Sport; specifically, with more athletes competing and more competitions taking place, there is an increasing requirement for qualified officials, coaches and classifiers.

World Para Dance Sport will support you through your further and continuous training and development. Our pathway programme outlines how you can progress in your training and development through national, regional and international sport events. 

World Para Dance Sport will continue to inform NPCs of all upcoming education programmes via this website and by email. We welcome initiatives from National Paralympic Committees, National Federations and Local Organising Committees to host education programmes.
