THERE will be no immediate cause for alarm when a league of superheroes descends on Forest Place.
The heroes will fight the villain of childhood cancer at the fifth Dance For A Cure at 9.30am on Sunday, November 18.
All funds from the event will help Telethon ensure a better life for children facing the life-threatening illness.
Five Perth dance schools will perform a showcase before the public take centre stage in a routine to Bonnie Tyler’s Holding Out For A Hero, choreographed by The Dance Workshop’s Ashanti Suriyam.
Individuals and families are encouraged to learn the short, easy-to-follow and fun routine from an online video and attend the event dressed as their favourite hero, be it superhero, sports star or personal hero.
Telethon’s Fat Cat will also dance in the main performance and there will be a rehearsal at Lathlain Oval on Sunday, November 11.
Event organiser Kylie Dalton said it was an honour to be part of Dance For A Cure.
“My joy is seeing them dance and then hearing them want to do it all over again once the dance is done,” Dalton said.
“It makes all the planning and sleepless nights worth it.
“We need to keep this in the news so that people never stop looking for a cure to all childhood cancers.
“What we raise goes directly to our own WA research projects,” she said.
