A phenomenal £40,000 was raised with nearly £9000 of donations specifically towards Dance UK’s Healthier Dance Programme.
I became a member of Dance UK in 2008 when I was awarded an ADAD Trailblazer Fellowship. Since then I have experienced the support and the benefits of being part of the wider dance community as an individual, freelance tap dancer.
