Birmingham Theatre Aims To Raise £5k In 5 Days

Birmingham Hippodrome has announced details of a new fundraising campaign which aims to raise over £5,000 to put a spring in the step of local young dancers.

Running from May 1st to May 5th, 'The Spring Steps Challenge' will seek to raise the cash in support of youth dance participation opportunities on the Hippodrome stages, in schools and throughout the wider West Midlands community.

From providing free, first-time dance workshops to nurturing the gifted and talented dancers of the future, the 2017 Spring Steps campaign aims to provide over 500 young dancers with the opportunity to experience the thrill of live dance, working alongside industry professionals to perfect their technique, grow their skills and develop confidence thereby inspiring a new generation of young dance talent on our stages. Graham Callister, Director of Creative Programmes at Birmingham Hippodrome, said:

"Birmingham Hippodrome has a long-standing reputation as a home for world-class dance. Through the work of Hippodrome CREATIVE, we are working equally hard to nurture and develop the dance talent of the future. By delivering a range of dance experiences to our communities, we aim to give even more young people the chance to embrace dance in its many forms and, in many cases, ignite a passion that will last a lifetime.

"§Birmingham is brimming with young creative talent, something we see all the time in our work with schools, colleges and in the community. Whether through dance classes, in-school workshops, performances in our foyers, on our stages and at our festivals or through professional talent development schemes, your support will prove a vital stepping stone towards our goal of giving young people from across the region the opportunity to express themselves through dance."
