Hatfield students flashdance for Comic Relief
HUNDREDS of dancers will invade the University of Hertfordshire for Red Nose Day tomorrow (Friday).
The Blues Brothers song Twist It (Shake A Tailfeather) will be heard across the Hatfield uni as students and staff take part in Dance Funny for Money.
Described as an event similar to the T-Mobile adverts, where dancers take over a public space, the Comic Relief fundraising effort is led by dance psychologist, Dr Peter Lovatt (aka Dr Dance).
He will be joined by the Red Nose Dance Troupes, who will be armed with donation buckets, teaching the mass comic flashdance to staff and students throughout the morning prior to the main event between noon and 1pm.
Dr Dance, who is one of the expert commentators on Strictly Come Dancing: It Takes Two and has also made appearances on The Graham Norton Show and The One Show, said: “It’s a great chance for people to get involved with Comic Relief and show off their moves too.
