My story

[p]Mrs Sarah's Story: At 16 years old I started Spotlight Dance Academy. The goal: to create a dance family where every pupil that walked through the door felt like they were coming home. My pupils have inspired me to build and achieve my dream. The support I receive from the children's families is incredible and I want to say thank you by pushing myself to the limit! [/p][p]Tasha's story: Tasha is a valued member of our dance family, taking 4 classes a week & helping in our minis classes too. She was recently diagnosed with Crohn's disease, which presented her with new and difficult challenges. SDA couldn't be prouder of Tasha, watching her overcome these challenges and becoming an inspiration to all. Her chosen charity is Over The Wall. [/p][p]Maddison's story: Maddison joined SDA at 3 years old and hasn't stopped talking since! When she found out she had kidney failure she didn't let that stop her and took part in our annual show 4 weeks post dialysis! Maddison now has a new kidney, donated by her mum. Their chosen charity is Dream Flight. [/p][p]We support Candlelighters in memory of Freya and her huge smile that lit up the room every time she came to dance. [/p][p]10 year challenges[/p][p] We Will Run 500 Miles: Mrs Sarah and Ant will be running 500 miles throughout the year. They can't count any gym sessions, walking to work or teaching classes. Ant will be taking on an extra challenge and completing his run in a weighted vest.[/p][p]For Mrs Sarah that's a 5 mile run every week, on top of teaching 6 days a week![/p][p]Hadrian's Wall: Miss Heather and Will are going to be walking all 84 miles of Hadrian's wall. Their route takes them from one end of the country to the other. They'll doing this in just 6 days![/p][p]100 mile bike: Mrs Stead will be cycling 100 miles on her trike throughout the year.[/p][p]10 inches of hair: In April, Miss Issy will be cutting her long locks off and donating her hair to The Princess Trust. [/p][p]10 10ks!: Mr Stead will be running 10 10k races throughout the year[/p][p]We also hope to raise a little extra to go towards our scholarship program. Sometimes life gets in the way, making it hard for children to attend out of school activities. We want to make sure every child is given the chance to nurture their talents or have somewhere they go to forget about the real world. We already have 8 children on scholarships and we hope to increase this by the end of the year. [/p][p]Pupils will also be taking on their own challenges throughout the year. [/p]
