Keeping Dance Alive

19 April 2013

Half time routine for the Shrewsbury game.

The U's bring down the curtain on their home fixtures on Saturday, as Shrewsbury come to town.

The match is our Family Day, with a host of activities taking place to entertain the crowds before the match gets underway at 3pm. (Full details HERE).

And, at half time, we welcome the dancers from Keeping Dance Alive, a county-wide project run by Essex County Council.

A number of schools from across the county will visit the Weston Homes Community Stadium to perform a half time dance activity and Brian Wilson visited Prettygate Junior School in Colchester on Wednesday to deliver their match tickets.

Sarah Parker, Head of Dance at Brentwood Ursuline Convent High School, said: "I have been working with the pupils at Prettygate Junior school as part of Keeping Dance Alive; an exciting programme of outdoor arts and sports events for 2013 that will encourage communities from across Essex to participate in a memorable Dance and Sports event at high profile venues.

"Pupils at Prettygate Junior School were very excited to not only be part of this project, they are also very proud to represent their school amongst hundreds of other young dancers.

"We have met on four occasions for pupils to learn and refine the dance choreographed by myself, Lisa-Marie Grafftham at Woodlands School and Nicola Jardine at Hedingham School.

"We cannot wait until Saturday for our first performance at Colchester United and now that the pupils have met the team captain they are bursting with enthusiasm to perform in front of the stadium."

Good luck to all involved on Saturday!
