Steppin’ out for charity
6:20pm Wednesday 4th December 2013 in News
MOVERS and shakers put their best foot forward at a charity dance competition raising funds for underprivileged children.
Radcliffe and Elton-based dance school ActiveDance held its first freestyle competition this month and raised £1,151 for the Frost Foundation’s Christmas appeal.
Nine dance schools from across the North West took part in the contest at Radcliffe Civic Suite, which saw dancers compete in rock’n’roll, team, solo, duo, slow dance and hiphop categories.
Nicola Cleaver, ActiveDance operations director, said: “The atmosphere was electric!
“The competition was a huge success which was down to the fantastic schools that came and supported us.
“ActiveDance pupils did extremely well with many first, second and third places being clinched.
“We have worked with The Frost Foundation on numerous occasions but this time it was really rewarding to organise an event for them rather than supporting one of their events.
“After the success of this competition, we are planning to hold three of our own freestyle competitions in 2014.”
Wendy Veevers, of The Frost Foundation, said: “This generous donation will be put to very good use for The Frost Foundation’s Christmas Campaign, which provides Christmas presents for disadvantaged children across Greater Manchester.
“We are so grateful for the support of ActiveDance. Thanks again to them for all their efforts.”
