Young dancers get into the rhythm thanks to Principality

Youngsters at a Cardiff dance group have got into the rhythm thanks to Wales’ largest building society.

Confusion Youth Disability Dance group, a flagship performance group run by Rubicon Dance, has been given new equipment and personalised t-shirts for the dancers to wear during their performances by Principality Building Society.

The support was announced as the youngsters put Principality staff through their paces during an evening of fast-pace routines and dance-offs. 

One of the volunteers from Principality Building Society, James Harper, said: “The Confusion Dance group were absolutely fantastic and inspiring. We thoroughly enjoyed taking part in the dance class, although the group were far better than us!

“We are extremely proud to be part of such a worthwhile programme and hope that our support will help the group and their local communities enjoy their wonderful dancing for a long time to come.”

The performance organisation is currently working with the National Inclusive Dance Network of the United Kingdom in order to increase the opportunities available to young disabled dancers to access higher education in dance and performance training.

Kathryn Williams, Director of Rubicon Dance, said: “We were thrilled to welcome the staff at Principality to our class, the group loved teaching them their latest routine and showing them some of their dance moves.

“We can’t thank them enough for the support they have given us as it will make a fantastic difference to our group. We hope to welcome Principality back to our classes again soon.”

Principality Building Society is committed to supporting the Welsh community and provides sponsorship for various organisations across the country.  In the last few months Principality has supported Ynystawe Cricket Club with new shirts, Birchgrove Primary School  with new football goals after a fire and golf classes in Conwy.
