Hull youngsters pull on their dancing shoes

Young people from Hull have been dancing the nights away thanks to an exciting partnership from Sanctuary Housing and Hull City Football Club Tigers Trust.
The leading housing and care provider has teamed up with the Tigers Trust to offer local girls, aged 12 – 18 years, the chance to showcase their moves in a series of innovative dance workshops.
The classes, taught by professional coaches, take place at the University of Hull Sports Centre on Inglemire Lane every Wednesday evening from 7pm and are open to any local girls who would like to come along.
As well as providing participants with the opportunity to develop their talents across different dance styles, they can also improve physical health, increase their confidence and self esteem, and interact and engage with other members of the community.
The sessions in Hull form part of the national Sanctuary in Sport project, which is delivering a range of activities to youngsters in communities across the country and are designed to encourage health and wellbeing and help keep communities active.
Paul Sarel, school and community project manager for the Tigers Trust, said: “At the Trust we work hard to provide sporting opportunities for the people of Hull and East Yorkshire, and it’s great that we have been able to work with Sanctuary Housing to offer something a little bit different to local teenagers.
“We hosted some dance classes over the summer and they were really successful, so I would urge all local girls to come along and join in the fun.”
