There’ll be costumes and hairspray and lots of excitement when six western Sydney dance schools come together later this month.
But unlike most dance events it won’t be to compete, instead the dancers will be joining forces to help a local cause.
The ‘Community NOT Competition’ fundraising event will help to raise much-needed funds for Penrith Community Kitchen.
In a world that sometimes revolves a little too much around competition, owner of PAWS dance school in South Penrith and organiser of the event, Rebecca Liu-Brennan said that it was a nice reminder to the dancers that there’s more to dance than just competing.
“I feel that competition gets too serious with dance and that there are more important things that we could be doing, to be actually making a difference,” she said.
The event is on Sunday, February 25 at the Evan Theatre. Tickets can be purchased by calling 1300 PANTHERS.
