Bollywood Charity Dance Challenge – Monton

yo dudes.…!!

good stuff happening in Monton Village this summer…

well, there could be, if we all decide to get involved.. #YouKnowYouWantTo

Remember the Ice Bucket Challenge ? Last years Charity Challenge ?, where you filmed yourself getting drenched by iced water, well

Desisisters (and Dil) have come up with something much more fun…nicer..and..more complicated too but then there’s a party !! all worth it in the long run..and hopefully raise some money for charity

Fact A: St Anns Hospice,local charity, well loved by the community, needs £16.00 a day raised to keep going..

Fact B: Dil, our village Postmaster, (Mr Dilip Patel ) can dance..and so can most of the village…

Fact C: Monton is the home of Desisisters.. the group with the aim of transforming life for everyone everywhere, restoring the spirit of enthusiasm and optimism everywhere we go.. honestly 😉


OBVIOUSLY.. perfect opportunity for a Bollywood Charity Dance Challenge !

Whats that you say ?

The Challenge – Desisisters are challenging the villagers of Monton/residents/local inhabitants/anyone who wants to join in… to perform one dance routine together, at the Liberal Club on last May Bank Holiday weekend.. May 28th

the routine is 7. minutes long and involves a variety of dance styles.. might have to be some rework here and there…BUT
