Xpress YourElf 2019

This year Xpress-Yourself wanted to ‘give back’ and chose to take part in the Alzheimer’s Society Elf Day. This felt like the perfect charity to support knowing our team and dancers would know and have known people living with Dementia. There are currently around 850,000 people with dementia in the UK. This is projected to rise to 1.6 million by 2040. 225,000 will develop dementia this year, that’s one every three minutes. 1 in 6 people over the age of 80 have dementia, (Alzheimer’s Society).

And so the idea of Xpress YourElf was born.

We promoted the idea of dressing up as elves across all of our Keep Dancing dance classes during the first week of December and boy you dancers did not disappoint!

The effort that everyone put in was so impressive and dancing as elves brought so much fun and laughter to all who joined in.


However everyone’s generosity and giving spirit meant that we raised a grand total of £754.76 which is absolutely amazing. Everyone should certainly be very proud of ‘your elves’.

Thank you to everyone who joined in and donated!
