Students from Hungerhill school took center stage at the Keepmoat Stadium earlier this month as they graced the field at half time with a dance performance during the game against Mansfield.
They are part of the partnership between Club Doncaster Foundation’s Doncaster Kicks project and Cre8ive Dance Academy to produce a series of Rovers match-day routines.
The partnership includes six-week periods with different schools to create and learn a dance that will be performed during half time of Doncaster Rovers games.
Cre8ive Dance tutor, Paige commented: “The girls at Hungerhill gave up their lunchtime every Thursday for 6 weeks and worked extremely hard. The routine came together in the final week and they smashed it at the match-day performance!”
She continued: “Cre8ive Dance Academy are looking forward to meeting the next set of students ready to work on another urban style dance piece."
The Cre8ive Dance team will now go through the same process in other schools, working with them for six weeks before the dancers take their new skills and put them into action on a match-day.
Community Coordinator for Kicks, Mark Cooper commented: “It’s great to see that this partnership is working so well; this is our second performance at the Keepmoat Stadium, with our second school and they’ve both been fantastic, so I can’t wait to see the rest of them.”
“You can see that the girls love every minute of the tutoring and dancing in front of thousands of people. It really is a one off experience to be able to dance on the Keepmoat Turf so we’re delighted with how it’s panning out.”
