Centre Stage dads to dance for Anna

Centre Stage School will hold their annual (matinee and evening) shows called 'Footwork' at Cork Opera House on Sunday, May 20, showcasing the talents of their many students.

As part of this year's production, they have put together a routine in aid of 'Anna's Dream to Dance' involving several Centre Stage School students and their fathers. 7 Year old Mallow native, Anna Browne was diagnosed with a Cerebral Palsy, Spastic Displagia and Cortical Visual Impairment last year and was a student at Centre Stage School until her legs became too weak to dance, and she now faces daily pain and discomfort.

However, there is hope for Anna; there is a surgical team based in America that could ease her suffering with a surgical operation, and her family have set up a GoFundMe page called 'Anna's Dream to Dance' in aid of the €100,000 required for the procedure. In an effort to help them towards this goal, Centre Stage School have set up 'Daddy and Me Dance for Anna' GoFundMe page and 17 very brave and noble daddies have agreed to perform with their daughters in the Cork Opera House in aid of this very special cause.
