RESIDENTS WITH mobility difficulties in a South Costa Blanca town received a boost after a local dance company donated funds from one of their shows.
Footwork Dance, based in Los Montesinos used proceeds from ticket sales of their sell out Christmas show Roll Out The Dance Floor to help the local Social Services Department buy several wheelchairs and other mobility aids.
The company are already in rehearsals for their next production, A Summer Review, which they are performing at the Casa de Cultura y Musica on Sunday 23rd July. Once again proceeds from ticket sales of the show will go to help the under priviliged of the town.
Footwork Dance has students of all ages in their company. In recent examinations overseen by Elizabeth Harris from the International Dance Teachers Association, students taking part ranged in age from 3 to 74 years, proving that dance is for everyone and age is not a barrier to learning new skills.
The IDTA is a leading dance qualifications organization, with over seven thousand members in fifty five countries. They define standards across a wide range of dance forms and examine performance for both professionals and non professionals, developing skills and good practice to promote the love of dance.
Examiner Miss Harris flew in especially from the UK to officiate during the examinations and students now have a nervous wait before the results are announced during the next few weeks. In past years the company’s success rate has been very good, so hopes are high for the studio this year.
