DanceSyndrome’s inspiring work was recognised at the Red Rose Awards, where the charity was chosen as the winner of this year’s Not-For-Profit Award.


The awards, which took place on Thursday 9th March at the Winter Gardens in Blackpool, exist to celebrate excellence in business in the Lancashire area and are organised by Lancashire Business View magazine.


DanceSyndrome was nominated for the Not-For-Profit Award and members of the team were interviewed by the judging panel in early February. The award was designed to celebrate not-for-profit public and private sector organisations that demonstrate support and development of their workforce including commitment to skills, flexible working, team building and sharing successes.



The DanceSyndrome team were delighted to attend the Awards night, where a total of 25 awards were presented on the night, to all types of businesses, from retail, to skills and training, to property, and everything in between! The team was absolutely thrilled when they were announced as the winners of their award!


The judges’ comments, which were read out on the night, stated “DanceSyndrome is a truly inspirational and passionate business which is changing lives. They can clearly be seen going the extra mile and, with franchise aspirations, this business model could change many more lives for the future.”


DanceSyndrome Managing Director Dawn Vickers said “We are so proud to be chosen as winners of the Not-For-Profit Award! The other organisations who were nominated all do really valuable and important work, so we feel truly honoured to be chosen as the winner! It is a real privilege for DanceSyndrome to be recognised in the company of so many excellent organisations from across the county. We hope to be able to build on this success and enable even more people to join us and be inspired to follow their dreams, whether that is in dance or other areas.”
