He­roes step up

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS -

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.”
