Vision Impaired, Hard of Hearing and Deaf Blind competitions commenced in Western Australian in 2021, and are now a regular feature in local DaneSport competitions.
The competition is run as a Teacher/ Student event with the Vision Impaired, Hard of Hearing or Deaf Blind dancer wearing the number and being the only one judged.
Dancers take cues through physical connection, between the leader and follower.
