Anneli Dance School
As we announced a couple of months ago, Blue Skye Thinking are Anneli's chosen charity for the next year. All of our summer show programme sales raised money for the charity, and we'd like to further kick-start the relationship off with a summer challenge for all our dancers. Before we explain the challenge, here is a bit of information about Blue Skye Thinking....
Blue Skye Thinking supports research into the treatment of childhood brain tumours, striving to give all children diagnosed, a better chance of survival and improved quality of life during and post treatment. Run by volunteers, money donated goes directly to the forefront of research and wellbeing projects.
The name of the charity is in tribute to Skye Hall, a young boy who suffered with a brain tumour but never lost his zest for life. You can hear all about Skye's story by watching the video on the charity's homepage.
One of Skye's brothers attends classes at Anneli, and it was through this connection that we met Skye's family and heard all about the charity. Skye loved to dance and we can't think of a better charity to form a relationship with, and here's how you can help over the summer....
We want you to come up with a fun and creative challenge over the summer holidays to raise money for Blue Skye Thinking. You can do this individually, or as a group. The challenge that raises the most money will gain the opportunity to open our Christmas show in their own dance piece, created all by themselves, either alone or with some fellow dance friends. You can use the sponsorship form attached below - paper copies will be available at the studio.
Have a fab summer, embrace and enjoy your challenge, have fun and help other!
The Anneli Team.
