In July we supported Design Dance Theatre Arts by helping their dancers travel to Portugal for the 2014 World Cup. We are extremely proud to announce that the team won first place out of 38 countries, for the 2nd year running. England was placed first with 383 points, Spain was second with 225, and Portugal came third with 211 points.
The dance school from Welwyn Garden City is Team England’s key dance school, so the majority of medals were won by the children Mode sponsored. Sienna (aged 8) won a total of 7 medals, 4 of which were gold. Lexi (aged 6) also won gold as she took part in the tap dance competition with her sister.
Their mother, Georgia, told us that “it was an amazing experience, and I would like to thank you for your support. We had very little commercial support and your generosity has been greatly appreciated.”
As always, we are delighted to be able to help our local community and ensure that local schools and clubs have access to international opportunities like this Dance competition.
