Britain’s Got Talent runners up Twist and Pulse will be performing at the Congress Theatre as part of The International Dance Federation (IDF) 10th World Dance Championships.
On Saturday 26 May a selection of danceaid patrons and performers including finalists from Britain’s Got Talent, Got To Dance and So You Think You Can Dance will come together for one night only to make a difference to children’s lives.
This spectacular show begins at 8pm and will bring some of the UK’s top dance stars to Eastbourne, with the opportunity to meet them after the show!
Danceaid is the UK’s charity for dance; it seeks to raise the nation to its feet to transform the lives of orphaned, poor, exploited, and disabled children in the UK and abroad.
Eastbourne Borough Council Cabinet Member for Tourism, Cllr Neil Stanley said “We’re delighted to have such household names coming to Eastbourne for the IDF Dance Championships. A lot of hard work has gone into making this a really fantastic event, as it is the first time that it has been held in the UK, so it is a fantastic accolade for Eastbourne that they have chosen to stage it here.”
The International Dance Federation (IDF) 10th World Dance Championships in Modern Dance Sport are taking place at the town’s Devonshire Park Centre, from 24 – 27 May, with the event expected to bring an estimated £1.5 million into Eastbourne.
So far, 850 competitors from 25 dance teams from countries including Spain, Italy, India, Hungary, Lithuania and Poland, have booked to stay in Eastbourne this summer.
‘DO IT’ for dance aid is your exclusive opportunity to see the UK’s top dance stars all under one roof, and tickets cost only £20.
There will also be performances from Britain’s Got Talent contestants, Karizma Krew, Parallel Duo and Abyss.
Theo Mini King of Pop, Kavman (the six year old break dancer!), Hippy-Joe and Belle will be performing from Got To Dance and the reigning UK street dance champion Peridot will also be there, along with Alesha’s Street Dance Stars Beat Breakers.
It looks set to be a fantastic evening all for a great cause. Danceaid is a new and exciting charity that harnesses the energy of dance to transform the lives of vulnerable children.
