Several doctors are members of XS Latin, and so the teams were enthusiastic when asked to help Hinchingbrooke Hospital raise funds for their children’s unit.

A charity dinner was combined with a Strictly Come Dancing competition, in which XS dancers performed with their ‘celeb’ partners (doctors and nurses from the hospital) in the hope of winning the glitterball!

The competition judges included XS Latin Coach, David Mallabone. The evening included a performance of The Girl from Tiger Bay and raised over £2000 for charity.

“Wow!  What a fabulous evening…. The atmosphere was magical, and the dancing superb…absolutely brilliant and a joy to watch.” – Anne-Marie Hamilton, Chairman of Dreamdrops fund-raising committee.

XS sent a couple to demonstrate samba, rumba and salsa, as well as teaching some basic cha cha cha to entertain the children and support the cause.

“The children and parents and staff loved it!  And this helped us to raise money for EACH, so you are truly making a difference in people’s lives. Thank you!” – Lory Peresson, Spanish Amigos Cambridge
