Ellie Simmonds Wants To Prove That Dancing Is For Everyone

September 23, 2022

Ahead of her upcoming run on Strictly:

The Paralympic swimming star has been finding her feet both on set and behind the scenes.

“With [having] dwarfism, I was able to go down to the studio just to make sure that things can work for me, even something simple like they’ve given me lower rails so I can put my outfits on. We get physio support and psychology support, too.

She says she and her [yet to be announced] dance partner will be learning together.

“He’s never danced with anyone with dwarfism before. And I’ve never danced before in my life. We’re just… going to adapt. Like if I have to hold him differently, I’ll hold him differently… but I think if I can do it… people watching from home can realise they can adapt. Dancing is for all.”
