Dance day for Terrific Tuesdays
Tue 9th August 2016
day of dance takes place at White River Place for the third Terrific Tuesday
with performances and workshops organised and hosted by St Austell-based
company 4Real Dance.
We are staging weekly jam-packed days of entirely
free, family-friendly entertainments to help keep the kids entertained during
the long school summer holidays.
the first two Terrific Tuesday events saw crowds pour into the town to enjoy
varied shows and activities, the third fun day on August 16th will be entirely devoted to dance – with a
chance to try out different styles and techniques yourself, as well as being
wowed by talented local performers, with classes for all ages and abilities held in
both Aylmer Square and South Square.
Some of the dancers will also be pedalling on exercise
bikes as part of a sponsored cycle to help the group raise funds to send two of
the company’s teams to the World Championships in Glasgow.
The schedule for Terrific Tuesday on
August 16th includes:
11am: Contemporary and lyrical performances by

Angie Smith, Principal of 4Real
Dance, said: “We had a fantastic reception when we hosted a Dance Day at White River
Place during the Terrific Tuesdays programme in 2015, and can’t wait to return
with an even bigger and better packed schedule of performances and workshops
for 2016. This is a great opportunity to come and watch some incredibly
talented local dancers showing off their moves, then try out different dance
styles yourself, and find out more about joining a local dance group.
“We’re hoping St Austell will also help us raise money to send our
talented dancers to the World Championships in Glasgow by sponsoring the
performers who will be pedalling on exercise bikes during our sponsored cycle
during the day.”
Hurst, Manager of White River Place Shopping Centre, said: “We love hosting Terrific
Tuesday events every summer to help parents keep the kids amused in the summer
holidays without having to break the bank, and every week we lay on different,
fun, family-friendly entertainments that are entirely free, trying to offer
something different to suit all ages and tastes.
delighted to welcome 4Real Dance back to White River Place to host another of
our Terrific Tuesday events after their visit last year was such a hit with
visitors to St Austell, and we can’t wait to see what these talented local
dancers bring to delight people in the town centre on Tuesday.”
following week, Terrific Tuesday events on August 23rd will include
the chance to learn how to play the African drums, with Matt from Big Bang
hosting a music workshop from 11am until 1pm, followed by Karla’s Parties in
town from 2pm-4pm with face painting, glitter tattoos, music, bubble machine
and arts and craft workshops.
There will be a
