Mark Rutherford students are after your Money Money Money for New York dance trip


Bedford students are getting their dancing shoes on, organising a fabulous Abba tribute night on March 9, fundraising for their once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to dance in New York.

The fundraiser will take place at Mark Rutherford School, starting at 7.30pm and promises to be a fun-filled night of all things Abba together with a competition for the best 70’s outfit.

The students will be visiting New York as part of an educational dance programme and will be taking part in dance workshops given by professional Broadway choreographers and watching hit Broadway shows.

The students don’t want the learning to stop there though and are hoping their Abba night will allow them to take part in an Alvin Ailey Dance Class and view some of the incredible sights New York has to offer with a bus tour.

Tickets for the event are £10 and you can book yours here.
