DanceSyndrome on the One Show with Miranda and Pasha

Posted on March 20, 2013


strictlyThe charity DanceSyndrome, which featured in the December 2013 of Dance Today, spent a day in the limelight last Tuesday, March 12 – for the very worthy cause of Comic Relief.

Founder Sue Blackwell writes: “What an incredible day and night in the life of DanceSyndrome it was. We’ve just spent eight hours in the company of celebrities from the worlds of dance and comedy and appeared on The One Show on BBC1.”  

DanceSyndrome performed a routine to the iconic Dirty Dancing song “I’ve Had the Time of My Life” alongside Miranda Hart, Sarah Hadland, Katya Virshilas, Pasha Kovalev and Lucy Siegle to help with Red Nose Day and Comic Relief. It’s all been an incredible honour.”
