The Hilary Green School of Ballet in Newcastle-under-Lyme has recently raised £2000 for Midlands Air Ambulance from its fundraising dance show.
The ballet school, which includes dancers aged three to eighteen, raised the money through three performances at the Stoke on Trent Repertory Theatre earlier this year.
The main attraction was a full-length version of the Nutcracker performed by some of the more experienced dancers. This was followed by a ‘dance of the changing seasons’ acted out by the youngest members.
“The kids performed wonderfully, they’ve being practicing for months and it’s fantastic to see them having such a great time whilst raising money for a very worthwhile charity” says Hilary Brady owner of the dance school.
Hilary has taught at the ballet school for 40 years and was inspired to raise money for the Charity after her husband Thomas suffered a cardiac arrest and had to be airlifted to Shrewsbury Hospital in February this year.
The fundraising event was attended by friends and families from the local area and Midlands Air Ambulance thinks everyone did a great job to raise such a fantastic amount of money.
