Dancers go old skool to raise money for school

Sometimes you just have to embrace your inner 80s child!

Legwarmers, leotards and lycra were the order of the day at The Lantern Community Primary School yesterday.

Dedicated dancers proved that you can have your cake and eat it – getting into the groove before enjoying some refreshments.

The Dancefit session, hosted by Friends of the Lantern School and led by Sarah Parker from The Lane Academy, raised over £250 to refurbish the school’s playground.
Sarah said: “There was so much fun and energy from everyone, topped off with some amazing 80s outfits!
“We danced through the 80s for an hour and finished off with some delicious cakes baked by committee members.
“Thank you to everyone for their help and all the kind donations for the raffle.”

With all the retro gear on offer, organisers had a tough time choosing the winner of the coolest costume, but the prize went to Shelli Martelli for her “fab gold glitter shoes” and Kids from Fame themed leggings, FOTLS member Emanuella de Lucia Rolfe said.

Shelli added: “It was great to finally have a chance to dust off my glittery golden dancing shoes and dance like I’ve never danced before to raise money for my son’s school. Thanks for a fun event and here’s to many more.”
