Urban City Street Dance invites you to become part of the movement to help beat cancer sooner.
The local street dance school will be opening its doors next week at Sackville School in East Grinstead as they invite the local community to put on their dancing shoes and join them in supporting Cancer Research UK’s Peter Andre Fund.
Shaun Angel and Jo Ramachandran, the founders of the street dance school are long time supporters of the charity. With close friends and family as well as supporters from the school having been directly affected by cancer, Shaun and Jo wanted to contribute to the vital work that the charity conducts and are looking to also highlight the importance of early diagnosis.
Expressing the school’s desire to highlight the fund, Urban City’s creative director and choreographer Shaun Angel says:
“Cancer Research is a charity that is especially close to so many of us and resonates with all of us here at Urban City. The work of the charity to improve early cancer diagnosis is truly remarkable and we hope that the money raised at this event will help Cancer Research to continue their worthwhile and essential work to help beat cancer sooner. This event is really open to anyone – whether you have never danced before or have some experience, it really does not matter as all levels are welcome to participate. We are looking to simply make this a major local fun dance event that ultimately brings together the community and support the Fund.”
Many of Urban City’s parents and adult supporters have already signed up to take part but the street dance school are widening the search for budding dancers and keen enthusiasts to get involved.
Mother of two Urban City students, Sam Roche-Motuel, cannot wait for next week’s event:
“My daughters have been with Urban City Street Dance for quite a while now and they thoroughly enjoy the variety of routines that Shaun choreographs. Having watched through the studio windows and been to numerous performances, I have always wanted to have a go at this myself. So naturally when the team mentioned this was happening, I thought what a great opportunity! I’m looking forward to being put through my paces, enjoy an evening with friends and raise some money for a fabulous cause. It’s going to be great fun!”
So have you got what it takes to be an Urban City Street Dancer for a night?
