Grace for a good cause
DOZENS of youngsters have been be stepping onto the biggest stage of their lives this week to perform a traditional fairytale in dance.
Members of the Marwyn School of Dancing are presenting their annual charity show at Felixstowe’s Spa Pavilion theatre with all proceeds again going to charity CLIC Sargent.
“Sadly as a school we have been associated with a number of families who have been touched by cancer and as a result we adopted and support CLIC Sargent and have donated �23,835 to this very worthy charity to date,” said school principal Jackie Bloomfield.
This year the school is performing The Princess and the Frog and it promises to be a lively show featuring outstanding dancers whose styles will include ballet, acro and modern dance.
Around 70 dancers – ages ranging from three to 40 years old – will take part and they have been rehearsing since late autumn.
