HYDC Dancers impress Dragons…
14th December 2010
Three members of Hampshire Youth Dance Company took part in Sports Leaders UK’s Leaders for Life conference in Crawley on 25 November and walked away with a £100 prize!
Ollie Gratton, Kiri Golding and Jess Montgomery pitched their idea for a community dance event that culminates in a flash mob dance performance to a ‘Dragon’s Den’ style panel and won the award for the best Sports Leaders UK centre project or initiative. The panel included managers from the Co-operative Community Fund, who might help them make their event a reality.
Hampshire Dance’s Youth Dance Strategy Manager, Sophie Amstell attended the event:
“Ollie, Jess and Kiri’s presentation was very impressive and I am sure their dance training helped them articulate their ideas in a confident way. They were much deserved winners and it was refreshing to see dance triumph in a sports context!”
