Dance to help save lives!
Published Tuesday 25th September 12 in Council - news and information releases news
The countdown is for a five-hour dance marathon on Sunday 14th October in aid of Save the Children.
This Ultimate Dance Challenge takes place from 11am until 4pm in the secondary hall at Southend Leisure and Tennis Centre, Garon Park, Southend.
It is being organised by Sway Dance in a bid to raise money to help save children's lives around the world.
Dancers are urged to take part and encourage their friends, family and colleagues to sponsor them.
Everyone is welcome to get involved, and if you don't fancy dancing for the whole five hours, then just join in for as long as you want.
If Sway Dance can raise more than £300 collectively amongst all the dancers, four lucky winners will be entered into a prize draw to win afternoon tea with Arlene Phillips, West End choreographer and TV personality, in London's luxury 5-star Royal Garden Hotel in Kensington, where she will share her top dance tips.
The money raised will help children across the world survive their vulnerable first five years.
Every year 7.6 million children under five die from easily preventable causes like pneumonia and malnutrition.
Southend-on-Sea Borough Council's Executive Councillor for Culture and Tourism, Councillor Derek Jarvis said: "We hope as many dancers as possible will come along and give their time and energy to join in with this tremendous endeavour for an extremely worthy cause.
"It will help Save the Children save even more lives around the world."
