UXBRIDGE mum Anna Kennedy won huge ap­plause in a dance show­case spec­tac­u­lar with TV dance stars at The Beck Theatre, Hayes.

The dance show, which took place on Satur­day, Au­gust 15, was a show­case star­ring Strictly Come Danc­ing favourites Robin Wind­sor and Kristina Ri­hanoff, in which Anna per­formed a Charleston.

She wowed crowds with the same rou­tine in The Peo­ple’s Strictly, when she was a con­tes­tant for Comic Re­lief ear­lier this year.

The mother-of-two, 55, has re­ceived an OBE for ser­vices to spe­cial needs ed­u­ca­tion, and has ded­i­cated her life to rais­ing money and aware­ness for her char­i­ties in aid of Autism Spec­trum Dis­or­ders.

She said: “The show was buzzing and it was a fab­u­lous show. I spoke on stage for over 15 min­utes, Robin and I danced our Charleston to a stand­ing ova­tion, I spoke about my ex­pe­ri­ence on Strictly and the work of my char­ity where our young char­ity cham­pion sang to the au­di­ence.

“All

the

dancers in­clud­ing Robin and Kristina took part in a selfie with the au­di­ence. Kristina has asked me to dance again at her char­ity event.”

Kristina is a trustee of The Dot Com Chil­dren’s Foun­da­tion which tack­les vi­o­lence.
