A new dance squad for over 17’s is being put together by 2 Step Dance Academy in conjunction with a government scheme to help people keep fit.

Sport Cardiff are running a new 5X60 scheme which encourages people to exercise for 60 minutes 5 times a week. The high demand for dance from this scheme has led to the creation of a new squad.

Director of 2 Step, Maria Katzi, said, “This academy will be used to inspire young people of Cardiff and South Wales to take part in dance sessions through the Sport Cardiff 5×60 scheme and then into community dance clubs.” 

Auditions were last weekend, but sweep up sessions for those who missed the auditions will be held over the next few weeks.
