Put on your dancing shoes and join in a St Austell town dance for charity

Mon 8th May 2017

Willing volunteers are needed to take part in a major dance performance happening in the heart of St Austell to help raise money for vital children’s charities.   

Dynamic dance school 4 Funx Sake Youth Dance has teamed up with St Austell shopping centre White River Place to organise the break-out dance performance event called St Austell Town Dance in the centre of the town on June 24th, as one of many events taking place locally for the UK-wide One Great Day fundraising event.   

Participants can come along to a number of free dance classes being held throughout May and June to learn the dance routine ahead of the live performance, and the aim is for those dancers taking part to be sponsored by their friends and family, helping to raise money for two major charities – Children’s Hospice South West and Great Ormond Street Hospital.  

 Richard Hurst, Manager of White River Place, said: “Every year we support the fantastic One Great Day fundraising initiative as part of a centre-wide effort led by our parent company Ellandi, and each year we try to come up with new, fun ways of raising money here in St Austell, working in partnership with supportive local organisations.   

“This year, as well as many other planned events, we’re delighted to be teaming up with the energetic 4 Funx Sake team and putting on what we expect to be a fantastic show for St Austell, with dozens of dancers performing in the middle of town.   

“We’re urging people to get involved now and sign up to perform, and then get sponsored for their brave efforts. There are free classes led by 4 Funx Sake to help people learn the routine and this is open to everyone, of all ages and all abilities.”   

 Details of more planned events for One Great Day in St Austell will follow soon.   

4 Funx Sake is a hip hop and street dance school based at The Keay Theatre at Cornwall College in St Austell, which also teaches all dance styles from ballet and jazz to commercial and contemporary, and caters for all ages, with special adult dance classes as well.   

Two blocks of three, free classes for those who want to learn the dance routine will be  run on May 8th, 15th and 22nd and June 5th, 12th and 19th from 4.30pm – 5.30pm at Studio 4 in The Keay Theatre at Cornwall College.
