Universal AV, a Bradford company with over 2 decades experience in providing AV solutions have helped over 100 performers of DM Academy take to the stage at ST Georges Hall, to raise money for the Ear Trust.

DM Academy and it's principal Deana Morgan, provides Children of all abilities with the opportunity to dance in theatres and venues many professional dancers only dream about. Every year the school puts on a dance extravaganza in December in aid of the Ear Trust – with proceeds from the show going to a deserving cause.
The Ear Trust carries out some amazing work in the Yorkshire region helping families cope with extra demands of deafness in a positive way and will allow the development of the child's full potential in preparation for schooling and, ultimately, work.

An event like this however does not just happen, it takes hours of preparation and rehearsal and costs money to stage.

Shelley Townend, Marketing Manager at Universal comments "I have taught at DM academy, helped at shows and now have a daughter that performs at these events. Deana provides the dancers with a wonderful opportunity that many dancers can only hope for. It is her pure enthusiasm for dance and ensuring children enjoy class that prompted me to get Universal on board. The company donated a state of the art projector for the event to ensure the dancers were showcased in the best possible way. The event was a huge success raising over £1000 and is relationship we will look to continue with in the future."

Deana Morgan of DM Academy comments, "We are so grateful to Shelley and the hire team at Universal AV for sponsoring the projector for our charity show in aid of The Ear Trust. It added immensely to the overall enjoyment by the audience and was a very generous gesture and we hope you enjoyed the show?"

Zumba

Getting into the true spirit of Children in Need, the girls from Universal AV donned their lycra leggings and took to the gym at The Edge, a new state of the art sports facility at Leeds University.

Armed with water and lucozade to help see them through, Bex, Carole and Shelley took part in the extravaganza, performing some tricky salsa inspired moves. Dancing for a little over 3 hours the girls had a lot of fun and for the most part followed the instructors, although on many occasion the girls did seem to be facing each other indicating a lack of direction!!

Nick Fitzpatrick, Director at Universal AV commented, "We work closely with Leeds University, as a preferred supply partner of their teaching solutions. When they told us of the Zumbathon we wanted to show, not only our support for the University but for Children in Need as well. We look forward to next year's Children in Need activities, and who knows we may have the boys in lycra too"
