Business Come Dancing Summer Ball 2016


Pavilion Dance South West and Lewis-Manning Hospice are proud to announce that over £4000 was raised for people living with Parkinson’s and other life-limiting conditions at the Business Come Dancing Summer Ball 2016 on Friday, 24 June. The two charities would like to congratulate the winners of this year’s competition and fndraiser, Simone Ritchie of Steele Raymond and Ruby Adams, teacher at Pavilion Dance South West.

Nine local business people from Bournemouth and Poole had again been training over six weeks with Pavilion Dance South West teachers, preparing to compete in front of an audience of over 100 friends and colleagues.

This was the first summer Business Come Dancing event for the two charities and as with the Christmas event, there was a fantastic mix of Latin, Street, Irish and 1940s Social Dance to keep the audience entertained.

It was a tight competition, with the judges deliberating long and hard about the top three before finally announcing Sharon Canning from Move-on Rentals in third place, Sophie Hudson from Seventa Events in second, and Simone Ritchie with a fast paced, 1940s Charleston in first place.

“We are thrilled with the support and commitment that all of our participants have given this year; the standard of dancing was incredible. We are delighted to have raised funds for Parkinson’s Dance and Lewis-Manning Hospice, but equally as delighted to see so many people enjoying dance”, says Helga Brandt Head of Marketing and development at pavilion Dance South West.

Providing invaluable support for people with Parkinson’s and those with-life limiting conditions, Pavilion Dance South West and Lewis-Manning Hospice are thrilled that so many people came together to take part in this fantastic event.
