A popular line dancing club for teenagers and young adults with physical and learning disabilities has begun meeting again in Hoylake.
Numbers have been growing steadily since the ‘Hot Wheels’ club began its new Thursday night dance sessions in November after a two year break.
Around 25 dance enthusiasts from all over the Wirral, including around ten wheelchair users, have been attending the sessions at Hoylake Community Centre on Hoyle Road.
The club is run by original Hot Wheels founder Julie Davies, along with her friend Linda Coleman, both from Moreton. It receives additional support from Hoylake based care provider T L Care, which provides care and support to around 10 members of the club and lays on free refreshments for the dancers, their parents and carers.
Meanwhile TL Care’s owners, Hoylake couple Dave and Melanie Russell, have been so impressed by the Hot Wheels dancers they have invited them to be the star guests at a social evening for the local community at Hoylake’s Melrose Hall on Friday 10 December.
Hoylake resident Tom Rooney, 22, is looking forward to showing off his moves. “I go dancing about four nights a week and this club is awesome!” he said. “The music is legendary and it’s much easier for me to get to because it’s right on my doorstep.”
Annie Morton, aged 15, is similarly impressed “This the third time I’ve been” said music-mad Annie, who also lives locally. “It’s fantastic. I’ve been doing the conga and dancing to Michael Jackson. I like it because I’ve made new friends.”
Hot Wheels welcomes everyone, regardless of ability, and admission is just £1.50. For more information about the club or the social evening on 10 December please contact TL Care on 0151 632 4065 or visit www.tlcwirral.co.uk
