We are part of the fund raising team for Cheshire Theatre School, a local dance school for children aged 3 and upwards based in Stockport. Over the years our school has produced a stream of talented dancers and seen us win numerous competitions across the UK. As a result of our successes, last year we were chosen to represent England in the 2015 Dance World Cup that took place in Romania.
This was an incredible achievement that we are very proud of and one that gave our Stockport dancers the unbelievable experience of dancing for their country and meeting and competing against other children from across the globe.
I am thrilled to say that once again this year we have been chosen to represent England in the 2016 Dance World Cup in Jersey, where we will be taking part in a variety of dance categories including ballet and street dance.
The dancers are therefore practicing hard three to four times a week and are determined to bring home some medals.
As you can imagine the expense of taking a group of 15 across to Jersey for the 7 days of competition is considerable. Naturally many of the proud parents who have children competing will be paying for flights and accommodation as well as costumes but as in 2015 we are hoping that we can gain support and help us pay for our England tracksuits.
I am sure you will agree that it is fabulous that a group from Stockport has been chosen to represent their country. If you feel that you could help us in any way we will be extremely gratefully.
