Wolk and health
Always check with a doctor first if you are concerned that taking part in wolk may be damaging for you. Never dance without first taking part in a warm-up, and remember that smooth pushing and lack of upper body movement are essential to prevent pressure sore damage.
Dancing is good for everyone, and wolk is no exception, including for dancers who need to be pushed. Wolk develops a love of and interest in dance along with improved wheelchair skills. In our experience*, the benefits of participating in regular sessions also include:
Physical health benefits
Mental health benefits
As a result of these benefits, participating in wolk also opens up other sport, training, educational and employment opportunities. *We welcome researchers who wish to test/prove any of the benefits of wolk.
