Dance academy performance raises £1,365

Around 100 dancers aged between four and 40 took part in the show which was titled ‘Celebrate’.

The theme celebrated five years of Brighton and Hove Dance Academy, showcasing dances by recent exam candidates.

In the first act, performances were based on the successes of the London 2012 Olympics, with groups of students dancing as swimmers, athletes and boxers to the music of Saint-Saens. The second act saw a celebration of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee with dance numbers themed on different precious stones.

The show was held at The Windmill Theatre at Blatchington Mill School and was supported by a large group of volunteers and the technical staff from the school.

Principal of the academy, Victoria Arnett said: “We chose CLIC Sargent because of their affiliation with The Royal Academy of Dance through their Practice-a-thon event.

"Because it was mainly children involved in the show, it seemed apt to choose a children’s charity. Taking part in the show had a positive effect on the dancers, inspiring them and building their confidence.”

CLIC Sargent fundraising manager, Dan Powell said: “A huge thank you to all of the students at Brighton and Hove Dance Academy, the volunteers who helped to bring the show together and especially to the school principal, Victoria Arnett for all of her hard work."
