Jive into March with Madam Curie

Is your dance club looking for a fun challenge in 2013?
Join hundreds of groups around the UK this March raising money for Marie Curie Cancer Care’s Great Daffodil Appeal by holding a Daffodil Dance. Your dance can be anything that takes your fancy, you could hold a performance, danceathon or a dance event for the local community, anything goes.

To help you along the way, some of the UK’s top choreographers have provided exclusive dance steps, including some Modern Jive ones. All the details are at, together with the steps. Register your event and you’ll also receive a fundraising pack bursting with ideas to make your Daffodil Dance a swinging success.

Norma Read of East Coast Liners has been holding Daffodil Dances with her dance group for the past six years. She says, “We’ve already signed up for next year’s event because our Daffodil Dance this year was such a fun night. Everyone wore yellow or daffodils and danced the night away. Our efforts also raised a fantastic £1,200 through sponsorship, a buffet and a raffle.”

For every donation given and every daffodil worn, Marie Curie is able to provide even more free care to terminally ill people across the UK. The Great Daffodil Appeal, with the help of volunteers and supporters, ensures that we can continue to provide the right care and support to terminally ill people and their families. So get your groove on and be part of making this year’s Great Daffodil Appeal the biggest to date.

And don’t forget to wear your daffodil this March.
