BBC Plans TV Competition Program For Wheelchair Dancing

Amazing! Will this catch on in the USA?


We all know that "Dancing With the Stars" is the US version of the hit UK TV series "Strictly Come Dancing". The dancing show was first popular in the UK and then it was brought over the Atlantic to the USA.

Now the UK TV Network BBC3 has announced that in its upcoming season of programs it will host a version of "Strictly Come Dancing" about wheelchair dancing! Very cool!

The new show is to be called "Dancing on Wheels". "Dancing on Wheels" will involve celebrities being paired with wheelchair users in a dance competition.

Hopefully Dancing on Wheels will show outside of the UK so the rest of us can watch. But what is the chance we will see a US version of Dancing on Wheels? German? French? Pretty small I would guess, but there is always hope.
