Gleemoor Dance School hosts Spring Ball

The Gleemoor Dance School hosted a Spring Ball at the Athlone Civic Centre on Friday evening. The event, which raised funds to allow their young students to take part in the South African National Championships in Durban at the end of the year, was a huge success.


Last year, the dance school managed to send three couples to the championships in Durban. The couples they sent all represented the Western Cape and thus attained their provincial colours in the sport. Valencia Kannemeyer, who is a trainer at the school and also one of the organisors of the ball, explained that to send any competitors to the championships requires a lot of money as accomodation, travel fare and subsistence needs to be taken care of - this is why they needed to raise funds.

The music for the evening was expertly provided by the Cool Sounds band who played all types of ballroom and modern music - including some popular songs such as "True Love", "Welcome to Cape Town", and "Ndihamba Nawe". People who attended the event could not resist stepping onto the dance floor.

Why I love ballroom dancingFrom the display, 13 year old Stacy Cupido writes down why she loves Ballroom Dancing: The reason why I love dancing is because it keeps me away from things that are bad and dangerous.
I enjoy doing ballroom because it's fun and you get to know more people, its exciting, you go places you've never been before, and you go to dance competitions and go to higher levels which is very exciting and cool.
