Dancers want to get Silhillians moving to the beat for charity

Solihull Editorial 8th Oct, 2021   0

SILHILLIANS are being called to get their dancing shoes on and help raise funds for Venezuelan children.

After a year away, due to Covid restrictions, Shirley resident Sarah Fitzsimons and Zumba teacher Carlos Valery will be back at the Shirley Centre, teaching novice and experience dancers some new moves.

This year the event, being held on October 17, will also be live streamed for anyone who wants to take part but cannot get to the Stratford Road centre in Shirley.

From noon the duo will be teaching different styles of dances including Salsa, Merengue and Pop.




There will also be an after party from 2.30pm which will be hosted by an International DJ.

There will also be a Zumba Pop Up shop, a raffle with some amazing prizes donated by local businesses and Venezuelan food on offer.


They will also be raising funds for Chamos – a cause close to Venezuelan-born Carlos’ heart.

The charity helps children in Venezuela with their education and health needs.

It provides meals for children at school, provides social opportunities for children to enjoy and has been supporting hospitals in need.

Previously the event has raised more than £4,000 which has been matched by St. James’s Place Foundation.

The Foundation is the charitable arm of St. James’s Place Wealth Management Group, based at Blythe Valley Park, and it matches every pound raised by it’s employees and partners for good causes.
