Sport specific information

When and where did you begin this sport?

Why this sport?
"At first, I had no idea how to dance without feeling my legs. The most difficult thing is to start dancing. Overcome your insecurity and come to the gym. A dance wheelchair was given to me by Para dance sport veterans and it is very different from a normal one. When I'm in my dance wheelchair, I feel like I'm flying."
Club / Team

Aliya Tusupbekova [personal], KAZ

Sporting philosophy / motto
