Here’s a carrot….

We hosted a dance rehearsal with some of our beautiful Latin dancers last Sunday, primarily to work out a choreography ‘The Boys Are Back In Town’ pageant.

However, dancers are always concerned about what they would be wearing for the show, as it will effect how they can move, and what they can perform on the street. It didn’t take much persuading to get them to try the costumes on and shoot a few photos – many thanks to Simon for his photoshop skills in taking the grotty backgrounds out and allowing us to focus on the important elements – the performers.

Now for a bit of a guilt trip. We are still desperately trying to raise finds for the project through the fund.it website. Without hitting our target of €9,600, we may not be able to deliver the show at all, so if you want to see these beautiful dancers, and the amazing routine they are working on, you’d better get pledging here:  

We are over 10% there already, but we need your support to get over the line!
