Inclusive Jerusalema Challenge!

Over the last year, the Jerusalema dance challenge has become a viral worldwide sensation, and we would love to see everyone getting involved! We’ve put our own spin on the dance to make it more inclusive for everyone. So whether you use a wheelchair, dance seated, or standing, you can join in the fun.

It’s irresistibly catchy, so come and have a go!

Our first challenger is Katie Goodwin, our National Representative for Para Dance UK.

To support you in learning an inclusive Jerusalema dance, we’ve created some video tutorials and dance alongs: simply choose whichever suits you best from the links below to get started.
