Get your dancing shoes on for this charity

It’s time to get your skates on!

Dance fans are invited to get the year off to a sizzling start at a fundraising evening.

The Rainbow Centre is hosting a night of Latin dancing, for dancers of all levels with experienced instructors from Salsatwist.

All proceeds from the evening will go to the centre, based in Fareham. It helps more than 60 children with cerebral palsy and 25 adults with MS, Parkinson's disease and stroke survivors learn how to overcome their disabilities and lead more independent lives.

Julie Woodward, The Rainbow Centre events fundraiser said: 'We have a real fun-packed evening planned including dance classes in salsa and merengue and entertainment by belly dance performer Nasira.

'DJ Trevor Pinto will be playing great Latin tunes all night for you to dance to and there will even be a chance to win two tickets to the West End Show Dirty Dancing.'
