TEENAGERS threw some funky moves as they limbered up for a charity dance competition.

But the props used in this dance routine have probably never been used before.

Young people from South Downs College will be dancing with walking frames for their entry in the British Red Cross Dance For Life contest.

Organised every year, the dance displayed has to signify an element of the charity’s work.

‘The students have to theme the dance around the work of the British Red Cross,’ explained Luanne Martin, 33, fundraiser for Hampshire.

‘For example, South Downs are theming their dance around the elderly because we do a lot of work with vulnerable people.

‘We do therapeutic care, so we will go into a hospice for example and give therapeutic massages.’

Forty schools in Hampshire are taking part, including Front Lawn Junior School, in Leigh Park, and Whiteley Primary School.

The county winners will get to compete in the national final at London’s O2 Arena.
