Leap Dance Fest

| ,

On Saturday 29th February Hornsey Vale hosted its first LEAP Dance Fest, a wonderful community fundraiser that had a range of activities for the whole family. 

People joined in sessions of various dance styles, which many did with great gusto! There was a café, bar, delicious pizzas and vegan food for everyone to enjoy. 

We would like to thank all of the attendees, young and old alike, for helping to create a warm and friendly atmosphere in which everyone had a great time. 

We would also like to give a heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers and fabulous dance instructors, who gave their time for free, helping to raise just over £400 towards our ‘new therapy room fund’. This will provide low-cost treatments for those with long-term health conditions in our community.
