Hunter Urban Dance Studio joined the call during May to 'Dance For Sick Kids', a fundraising event that ran during National Families Week (15 - 21 May).
The high-energy initiative invites people of all ages and abilities to sign-up for a seven day dance challenge, that aims to raise spirits as well as much-needed funds.
Acclaimed professional dancers Marko Panzic and Jarryd Bryne first launched the 'Dance for Sick Kids' initative during COVID last year.
A number of other professional dancers, choreographers and personalities joined the cause this year offering fun, online dance classes to participants to get them moving and having a good time whilst raising awareness and funds for the Ronald McDonald House Charities.
Hunter Urban Dance Studio Principal Skye Vickers signed up herself and asked others within her studio if they would like to be part of the cause, which led to the creations of a team of students and teachers who went on to raise $5,628.20.
This amount equates to just over 35 nights of support for a family at Ronald McDonald House.
The studio has seen a number of local families utilise Ronald McDonald House and though this was a great opportunity to give back to the community whilst doing something they all love.
'We would like to thank the community for getting behind us during this event, it is much appreciated,' said HUDS owner Skye Vickers.
The 'Dance For Sick Kids' event altogether raised more than one million dollars, which will go a long way to help support families with seriously ill and or injured children.
