Warriors Foundation Partner with RL Cares

Wigan Warriors Foundation recently came together with Rugby League Cares to give 250 youngsters the chance to perform on the biggest last week.

The young dancers took the field at half-time of the Challenge Cup Final and 25 of those were representatives from the Warriors Foundation.

Individuals came together from the Wigan area to take part in a 4-day intensive summer camp, led by Phoenix Dance Theatre of Leeds. The camp, held at central Park, took the dancers through a 9-minute piece which really tested their stamina and endurance.

After a mass rehearsal day in Warrington to pull the performance together with 6 other Rugby League Foundations, it was an early set off to Wembley to arrive in time for the once in a lifetime performance.

Lead Choreographer De-Napoli Clarke led the army of dancers for a special visit to the stadium before the gates were officially opened, and the dancers performed in front of the 77,000 strong crowd.

Amanda Wilkinson, Wigan Warriors Community Sales and Marketing Executive said: "It was great to be able to give the girls this opportunity to perform at Wembley. We've really enjoyed this project working with Rugby League Cares and can't wait to do this again in the future."

Sarah Elston, Project Manager for Rugby League Cares Dance Programme said: "I'm thrilled that the Warriors fountain embraced this opportunity and opened their doors for young people to have this experience. Amanda's enthusiasm was the key to the success of the project and I look forward to working with her again."
