EMILY Holloway has set herself the challenge of learning and choreographing 10 dance routines over the next year, all to raise money for the Southmead Hospital Charity.

And the Redland resident is calling on local people to help with her latest piece.

Emily, who runs ‘Anybody Can Dance’ workshops across the city, has already recreated Pharrell Williams’ ‘Happy’ video on the streets of Bristol.

She also organised a flash mob in the city centre, which saw 30 people take part in a spontaneous dance medley of pop hits.

Now, she is preparing to perform a version of the ‘Cup Song’ from the movie Pitch Perfect and is looking for participants to learn the routine and take part.

The event takes place on Saturday September 26, 11am, at The Cambridge Arms in Coldharbour Road.

Emily said: “I am looking for singers and people who would like to have a go at producing a rhythm with just your hands and a cup!

“You can watch a video to see what we will be recreating or contact me to receive a tutorial video.

“It would be great to have as many people involved in the challenge as possible, whether dancing with your hands or voice, or both.”

Other routines Emily will be performing include Beyone’s ‘Single Ladies’, the ‘Mirror Dance’ from TV show The Vicar of Dibley, a “death defying” aerial piece, a tribute to Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers, tap dancing, and the famous Dirty Dancing number.

Emily’s ’10 dance challenge’ will then culminate in a Zumba-thon.

She has so far raised over £140 for the Southmead Hospital Charity, which supports healthcare services at Southmead Hospital and Cossham Hospital, as well as services in the Bristol, South Gloucestershire and North Somerset communities.

Her fundraising goal is £2,000.
