Young dancers took to the floor to raise awareness and money for Richard House, London’s oldest children’s hospice.
The Got2Dance competition saw nine diverse acts compete to win over the judging panel, which included TV DIY star and children’s hospice patron Tommy Walsh, and leader of SmoothMoves Academy of Performing Arts, Lauren Cooke. The dancers were all in years 7, 8 and 9 at three local schools; St Bonaventure’s School, Eastlea Community School and Wanstead School.
Dance was celebrated in all its forms with styles from tap to Indian dance being represented. The electric atmosphere reflected the dedication and hard work of the young people who took part.
The winning team was Infin8 from St Bonaventure’s School with their choreographed street dance. Go experience was approached by Richard’s house to be a sponsor for the event and we were delighted to offer them a winning voucher and certificate for a Go-Dance experience.
Hannah Bosley, Richard House community fundraiser and organiser of Got2Dance, added:
“The qualities of the acts were of such a high standard that the judges awarded high scores across the board. It was very close and all of the young dancers gave remarkable performances.
“Infin8 really stood out to me because of their obvious connection as a team. Team work and caring for one another is incredibly important here at Richard House.”
As well as raising awareness of the work of Richard House Children’s Hospice, the evening is also set to raise almost £2,000 to help fund the crucial support that the hospice provides for children and their families.
The event was a huge success and all the children involved had a brilliant time and Go experience were delighted to be a part of it!
