Dance Flash Mob in Bradford
A 150 strong Dance Flash Mob is coming to Bradford to fight for Mental Health!
Helen Ioannou, Service Director talks to BCB Radio about the Flash Mob:
Joze School of Dance has organised a Dance Flash Mob with 150 dancers in Bradford City Centre at 2pm on April 2nd 2022. Up to 150 dancers made up for adults and children from the local area will be performing in Centenary Square in Bradford City Centre.
The aim of the Flash Mob is to raise vital funds for Mind in Bradford.
Jo Sproston, owner of Joze School of Dance spoke about why she is doing this challenge:
“I’ve been running Joze School of Dance for 17 years and have noticed a huge increase in mental health problems amongst my students and their families since the first Lockdown in 2020. I wanted to help support and fundraise for Mind in Bradford plus raise awareness and make sure my students know that “It’s Okay not to be Okay”. I did the event ‘Carrying the Burden’ last year where I wore a weighted vest for 24 hours & this year I am organising this Dance Flash Mob. This is also a fabulous performance opportunity to have some fun together as we’ve lost so many times to perform over the past 2 years”
Lydia Gray, Fundraising Officer at Mind in Bradford applauds the dancers efforts so far:
“What an incredible way to raise awareness of the importance of mental health! We’re so excited to see so many people from our community coming together to spread the word about Mind in Bradford in such a fun and exciting way.’
Where will the Flash Mob location be?
