A dance school will pay its own tribute to the excellent work being done by Macmillan nurses.

The Hartlepool-based KR Dance Studios is planning a charity night on Friday, June 24, at the Owton Manor Social Club in Wynyard Road.

Kim has been teaching dance and fitness now for around eight years and her business KR Dance Studios has gone from strength to strength in the last few years, growing from being in a community hall to their very own three storey building in the centre of town

Doors open at 6.30pm and tickets are £5 which are available at the KR Dance Studios which are in Dalton Street in Hartlepool. Organisers are hoping to fill all 400 places.

KR Dance is run by its founder Kim Ross.

Sophie Barker, spokesman for the academy, said: “We’ve got a charity night coming up to raise money for the Macmillan nurses.

“This is a cause very close to Kim’s heart as they looked after her nana Edith Ross at the end of her life before she passed away earlier this year.

“So Kim and the KR Dance students are putting a night together to celebrate the wonderful service they provide and to raise some money for a fantastic cause.

“Everyone is welcome to this event and we encourage members of the public to come along and show their support.”

Fifty KR Dance students will be performing on the night and there will also be plenty of other highlights such as quizzes, raffles, a hot buffet, games and prizes.

The show comes at an exciting time for the academy.

In a bid to create more opportunities for her students, and “provide new experiences for them in their dancing careers” Kim organised an elite photoshoot and is planning to do more of the same later in the year.

The studios have already held their own show this year when Speechless was performed at the Town Hall Theatre in Raby Road in March.

The academy has also held an open day to promote its range of lessons.

Sessions which are held at KR Dance, in Dalton Street in Hartlepool, include Pound, Rockout, Workout, Pole Fitness and aerial hammock training.

Sophie added: “Kim has been teaching dance and fitness now for around eight years and her business KR Dance Studios has gone from strength to strength in the last few years, growing from being in a community hall to their very own three storey building in the centre of town.

“The studio boasts three fully equipped studios, changing room, and brand new students lounge.”
