UK - Le Mark donated 38 home-practice dance mats to The Sarah England Dance School to enable participants to perform in aid of BBC Children in Need.
The Greater Manchester school is set to participate in “Tapathon”, the national dance marathon, which will take place on 15 November as an online event, with participants recording their performances at home.
Ahead of England's second national lockdown, school owner and tutor Sarah England had the foresight to prepare, and had everything in place to bring back online classes when the restriction measures were re-introduced. But how could she get 38 tap dancers to take part outside, on hard ground, without damaging their tap shoes and respecting social distancing rules?
Not wanting her students to miss out on this opportunity, Sarah called Le Mark’s flooring manager, Hannah Tuohy. "When I spoke to Sarah, she told me what the mats would be for," says Tuohy. "I was so excited to help. We always recommend our Nocturne flooring for hard shoe work such as tap, so what better floor to donate."
Le Mark offered all 38 dance mats free of charge, enabling the students at The Sarah England Dance school to perform and help raise money for an amazing charity whilst keeping their floors at home protected during home-practice.
“We can now take part individually, and will be tapping away in our kitchens, gardens and safe open spaces," explains England. "We will happily and probably most appropriately be 'Singing & Dancing' in the rain. Well, this is England!”
