Money raised by Magic 105.4’s Cash For Kids charity is being used to fund dance academies across London.
The ‘Time of Your Life Dance Academy’ aims to introduce young people across the capital to the benefits of dance, the experience of live theatre and provide them with vital life skills.
Magic’s Cash for Kids charity is the financial backer, using £40,000 raised in a Dirty Dancing Valentine’s Day Gala Performance in February. The yearlong programme will launch soon with ten academies taking place across London.
The culmination of the project will see participants perform as part of a full length show on the Sadler Wells main stage, which is the dancing equivalent of being given the chance to do breakfast on Radio 2 for a day!
