“We are very pleased to be working with DSI London to offer athletes the chance to access their incredible products at a discount.”
World Para Dance Sport has announced a partnership with costume maker DSI London.
Athletes will be the first to benefit with a 10 per cent discount on men’s and women’s wear, shoes, fabrics, crystals and accessories from their online shop.
The partnership is a first for World Para Dance Sport and comes before the start of the 2017 season, which will feature the World Championships in Malle, Belgium, from 21-22 October.
Other competitions in 2017 include Cujik, the Netherlands, from 15-16 April, Lomianki, Poland, from 19-20 May and Frankfurt, Germany, from 17-18 June.
DSI London is known for supplying dresses to the hit British television show Strictly Come Dancing and are world-renowned within dance circles for producing the highest quality garments and accessories.
Camila Rodrigues, World Para Dance Sport Manager, said: “We are very pleased to be working with DSI London to offer athletes the chance to access their incredible products at a discount.
“We know that what dancers wear are very important for them to perform at their best and that can be very costly.
“I would like to thank Gerald Schwanzer and his team for offering this support to teams as well as the promotional activities they will undertake to spread the word about this growing sport.”
As part of the agreement, DSI London will promote wheelchair dance on its website and on its channel DSI.TV as well as through brochures and at exhibitions.
Gerald Schwanzer said: "As an ex-competitive dancer I remain passionate to support any form of dance, and hence I am delighted to be in a position to promote Para dance sport through our website and our DSI.TV online video channel.
“We also hope that providing a discount on all our products for Para dancers is helpful.”
Athletes can take advantage of the discount code by visiting World Para Dance Sport’s website and clicking on the link to the DSI London website. The deduction will then be made at the checkout stage, once a selection has been made.
