After the success of Pudsey’s Adventures art competition for
Children In Need back in November, we talked about what we could do to raise
money for Comic Relief.As this year is
the 25th anniversary of Red Nose Day we thought about doing
something based on the number 25.The
Princess came up with the idea of making up 25 dance routines, but I thought
this might be a little bit ambitious so she settled on the idea of learning 25
styles of dancing and putting them all into one routine!
The photo shows the different styles she incorporated into
the routine.I think it’s worth
mentioning that she only goes to an hour’s dance lesson per week (which is
split between ballet, modern and tap).I
danced when I was younger and studied contemporary dance at University, but I
am certainly no expert!We looked at
online tutorials and videos for most of the styles and of course The Princess turned
them into her own versions, but I hope you are still able to see most of the
styles within the video.
She’d chosen to dance to ‘Dance With Me Tonight’ by Olly
Murs and I think her choice of music worked very well.It also meant she wanted to practice over and
over again so she could keep listening to the song!
She worked incredibly hard and she found some of the steps
difficult to pick up but was determined to get them right and remember the whole
routine.I am really proud that she did!
is still time to donate to her Red Nose Day Giving page and even be in with a
chance of winning a 20x28” canvas of some of our Olly Murs tour photos if you
donate by midnight tomorrow (more info on that here!)
She has raised £75 so far, which I think is fantastic, so a big thank you to everyone who has donated!
