Raising money to put disabled toilets in our studio and a ramp so more people can enjoy our facilities.
As a Dance School we like to be part of the community we live in (Blackpool and the Fylde)
We already run a Silver Dancers club focusing on dementia and a Golden club for children who are deaf but we would like to do more and currently though we have down stairs toilets they are not wheelchair friendly our goal is to sort this out so we can run wheelchair dance sessions and seated exercise groups and we would also like to start a sensory cafe.
Please help with a small donation and if you would like to get involved in a bigger way we are look for people to help run fundraising events and join our Bronze display team.
We need £2,000 and have been offered funding of £1,000 if we raise £1,000 and we have already raised £300 towards our target please help this will benefit our community greatly.
To get more involved please ring 01253 693350 and ask for Janet or Beverley

Janet is thrilled to help coach some of the couples and have been asked to be the Head Judge yes the Len Goodman of our event and no I won’t be “pickling any walnuts”!
She was approached earlier this year to help at this event an as my first job was a nurse in the mental health sector how could I say no, over the past few months I have meet a number of dancers and have coached 4 couples for this great charity.
She’s had great fun teaching a number of dancers and choosing the music, steps and story we have been creating the couples are all lovely and very dedicated to both the dancers and the cause. The dancers have given up many hours to rehearse and practice over the months and we all looking forward to the competition.
There are a lot of thing she wanted to put in the blog but at the moment they have to remain secret but once the competition has started she will tell you more about our journey
Below is a bit about the charity and how it started have a read and maybe get a tickets and come and support us over the weekend.
