Putting the boot in to help Worcester dance school

TWO TEENAGE rugby fans kicked 108 drop goals each in 30 minutes to raise funds for the dance school they attend.

Kassie Hassan and Danielle Smith goes to the Worcester School of Dance which was started by Amy Roberts.

Amy has dedicated her time to training the girls to compete in freestyle dance and then, during the pandemic, she ensured the team’s sessions continued on Zoom so they would be ready for when competitions returned.

The dance school has grown since its launch and has moved into larger studio which came with an extra cost Amy needed to foot the bill for.

So the teacher challenged her students to come up with a fund-raiser of their choice to generate some cash.

Kassie and Danielle was sponsored to see how many successful rugby kicks they could do and managed 108 each at Worcester Rugby Club after getting permission from Warriors to use their training ground. They raised £280 each and all the girls in the team notched up a total of £4,0000.

Kassie’s proud dad Christopher said: “The girls adore Amy and will honestly do anything for her, they even get her Mother’s Day gifts and other things

“Amy knows everything about the world of freestyle dance as she herself used to do it and compete at the highest levels.

“Now she passes all her knowledge onto the girls.”

He added he wanted to thank Chris Burton from the rugby club who helped organise the fund-raiser and the players who took time to help with the event.
