Dance Dash raises £3,383 for Children in Need

This year on Friday 17th November 2017, students at Herne Bay High School performed their annual ‘Dance Dash’ to help raise money for Children in need. They went to 10 primary schools in total, along with HBHS and Herne Bay town centre, performing their dance dash performance piece. The total in which they raised this year was £3,383. Each year we are very grateful to be a part of such an amazing experience to help raise money for Children in Need.

This year’s Dance Dash involved 30 students from a mixture of year groups from years 8-12 and involved the students ‘dashing in’ and ‘dashing out’ of the local primary schools and the local community to perform their 5 minute street dance piece. They have since received raving reviews and quality feedback from the primary schools, who have already stated they “cannot wait for next year’s dance dash” and “we LOVED it so much that we went on to boogie in our own way for ages afterwards!!  Thank-you so very much for visiting us - your dancers are truly inspirational”. We have already secured their bookings for next year!

Every year the primary school children get so excited for Dance Dash to come and visit their school, and there are people who took part In this year’s Dance Dash event who remember watching it from a very young age, remembering how inspired they were and having that motivation to ‘get into’ Dance Dash when they reach secondary school. This year one student wrote;

 “Thank you so very much for the opportunity to be a part of dance dash this year for the first time. My first memory of dance dash was when I was in year 3, watching the dance dash every year and always wanting to be a part of it. This year I finally had the chance to! I think everybody in the dance community at HBHS should have this opportunity as I have, so they can get the feel of what it is like to be in a big-ish company and be able to dance to raise money for charity. Opportunities don’t come up like this easily and when they do and we get offered a place, we take it with gratefulness and happiness. Can’t believe all the weeks’ worth of dancing went so fast in one day! Thank you so very much for this opportunity and I’ll remember it for the rest of my life”

When we performed in the primary schools the pupils said things like “I would like to do that one day”. They seemed to thoroughly enjoy it!! We went to Herne Infants, Herne Juniors, Hampton, Herne Bay Juniors, St Mary’s, Blean, Joy Lane, St Alphege, Herne Bay Infants and Reculver Primary Schools.

Each year there is always a different variety of people in Dance Dash so it gives everyone an opportunity to take part in this wonderful experience. The Dance Dash team 2017 would like to take this opportunity to thank anyone who got involved or donated any pennies to make this year’s event the success it was. We really appreciate your support and help! And we hope you enjoy next year!
