Wakefield Trinity Wildcats are thrilled to announce the club’s primary dance partners, DanceXplosion, have been granted vital funding from ‘The Big Lottery Fund’.
The dance academy has been granted the funding to deliver crucial health and fitness programmes to Key Stage two pupils in 30 schools across Wakefield.
The schools will all take part in a four week programme, delivered by DanceXplosion, that will focus on educating the children about the importance of maintaining a healthy and active lifestyle.
The project has been launched this week and will run until April 2017, and DanceXplosion director Jodie Travis is delighted to have been given the grant.
“It’s amazing that we have received the funding from The Big Lottery Fund as it means that over 900 children in Wakefield can benefit and be educated on the importance of a healthy lifestyle,” she said.
Wildcats’ Lead Community Officer James Stephenson added, “We have a really good relationship here at the club with DanceXplosion, and get to see firsthand the opportunities they provide for children.
“This is another step forward towards our aim of providing as many children as possible with the opportunity to get involved with physical activity, whether that be through rugby, dance or any other sporting activity.”
