Strictly Come Dancing may almost be over for another year, but the show must go on for the folks at North Leeds Dance Academy (NLDA). To help keep them warm before, during and after rehearsals, Morley Glass & Glazing has funded new personalised hoodies for the team featuring the new NLDA logo.
An award-winning Ballroom and Latin Dance Academy, NLDA offers everything from beginners’ ballroom classes to Zumba parties and wedding dance tuition. Recently, the Academy worked in partnership with Variety to bring the children’s charity’s Strictly Ballroom charity event to life.
NLDA dance instructor Olivia Choi was partnered with Morley’s own Ian Short for the event, which saw them romp home to victory following an expertly executed samba. The evening itself raised almost £14k to help Variety continue its charitable work; over 200% of their target!
Ian comments: “The team at North Leeds Dance Academy never stop, their passion for dance is infectious and they’ve even inspired me to continue competing in future dance events. We’re delighted to be able to help them continue their mission to get everyone in North Leeds dancing.”
