Heroes step up
Dancers dressed as heroes took over Lathlain Oval on Sunday for their only rehearsal ahead of this weekend’s Dance For a Cure.
THERE will be no immediate cause for alarm when a league of superheroes descends on Forrest Place this Sunday.
The heroes will fight the villain of childhood cancer at the fifth Dance For A Cure at 9.30am.
All funds from the event will help Telethon ensure a better life for children facing the life-threatening illness.
Five Perth dance schools will perform a showcase before the public take centre stage in a routine to Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out For A
Hero, choreographed by The Dance Workshop’s Ashanti Suriyam.
Dancers have learned the routine online but came together on Sunday at Lathlain Oval for their only rehearsal.
This Sunday they will come dressed to perform as their favourite hero, be it superhero, sports star or personal hero.
Event organiser Kylie Dalton said it was an honour to be part of Dance For A Cure.
“My joy is seeing them dance and then hearing them want to do it all over again once the dance is done. It makes all the planning and sleepless nights worth it,” Dalton said.
“We need to keep this in the news so that people never stop looking for a cure to all childhood cancers.
“What we raise goes directly to our own WA research projects.”
