Get ready to rumble...

ready to rumble

Calling everybody with a sense of humour and 3 left feet to be part of our Fiorentini Foundation's Sponsored Lip Sync Dance Battle.

If we get 20 adults taking part that can raise a minimum of £50 each this will help support up to 10 disadvantaged children via the performing arts. The less experienced you are, and the more out of your comfort zone the better! Your friends are more likely to sponsor you!

To take part you must be available for rehearsals taking place on 10th and 17th March 2016, 6.30pm - 9pm in Islington, (let us know in advance if you can't get there till 7pm) and be available for the actual showcase on Saturday 19th March, (and the dress and technical rehearsal that afternoon). This routine will close Act 1 of Stage & the City's showcase. Last year we did It's Raining Men and it brought the house down!

Let's face it...this is less commiment than a marathon and a lot more fun! Plus the rehearsals are you get 2 free dance lessons taught by Mark Short who choreographed the actual Ant n' Dec's Let's get Ready to Rumble routine...if he can teach them he can teach you!

There will also be an after show party at Radicals in Islington 10pm - 2am for particpants and their friends who have bought tickets to the show.

Even if you can't make it please encourage friends to get in touch annd be a good sport!

“This event will support 20 disadvantaged children that are at risk of social exclusion and help keep them away from the temptation of gang crime, suicide and chaotic home lives. What's more you get 2 free dance classes with one of Tina Turner's and Peter Andre's choreorgrapher. And it actually helps if you have 2 left feet!!”

In early 2015 we searched high and low for men that had a sense of humour and 3 left feet to take part in our Man Up challenge.
This challenge was set to raise funds for the Fiorentini Foundation which supports disadvantaged inner city children via the performing arts.
We managed to recruit 9 men, most of whom had never danced before.
They attended just 2 dance workshops given by Mark Short, who has choreographed artists including Tina Turner, Peter Andre and Ant n’ Dec.
Then on Saturday 18th July they performed a dance routine to It’s Raining Men as part of Stage & the City’s first showcase.
It was the final act of Act 1 and as you can imagine it brought the house down. Whoops and cheers and women near to tears!
These wonderful guys managed to raise just over £500 for the charity. They had set up a BT Donate page and also had a collection from the audience as soon as their dance routine had finished. As one participant said, “I couldn’t believe that they were slipping £10 notes into my hands”.
Not only did it give the participants and the audience a warm, fuzzy feeling it also meant that several more children can now attend the Anna Fiorentini School which helps young people increase in confidence, self-esteem and live skills.

“I was overwhelmed by how generous these guys were, giving up their time and willing to have a laugh. The first rehearsal took place on a Thursday evening when there was the tube strike. And yet they all still managed to attend, breathless and sweaty…and that was before the rehearsal had even begun. That’s when I knew we had a team to be proud of.”
