DanceSyndrome are delighted to announce that Steve Elias, star of recent BBC2 show Our Dancing Town, has become a Patron to the charity.
Steve joins us on our mission to get everybody dancing hot off the heels of his BBC2 show, which saw Steve work with a range of local people, from cleaners to rugby players, to create one-off dance spectaculars in three Yorkshire towns.
As a former rugby player turned professional dancer, Steve made his name in the West End where he performed in the original cast of the stage version of Billy Elliot.
Steve said: “I am so excited to be supporting the wonderful work of DanceSyndrome. The team are truly showing how dancing can bring people together and prove people don’t need to be defined by their age or ability. I look forward to supporting the charity to help more and more people find their dancing feet.”
Steve is supporting DanceSyndrome and our current Edinburgh Fringe fundraising appeal – raising vital funds to enable the team to perform at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
