YOUNG dancers can continue with their hobby thanks to an Observer appeal to find Fusion Street Dance a new home.

Classes were on hold after the dance school, which has around 80 members, was forced to move from Ore Community Centre in July, and from St Helen’s Church Hall earlier this month.

Denise White, who runs Fusion Street Dance had tried every avenue she could think of, but had been unable to find a new family-friendly venue.

In the Observer two weeks ago, she appealed for anyone who knew of a suitable venue to contact her, and as a result, the dance school has found a home at the Broomgrove Community Centre, in Malvern Way.

Denise said: “I would like to say a big thank you from me and everyone at Fusion Street Dance for all the Facebook messages, phone calls, offers and suggestions from readers, it was amazing!

“We have started classes at our new home and it is bigger and better than ever.

“The lovely people at Broomgrove Community Centre have been very helpful and settled us in quickly even arranging storage for our dance mirrors.

“I am so grateful to everyone and pleased that our dancers still have the hobby that they love.”

Dancers from Fusion Street Dance, which is open to all ages and abilities, have taken part in competitions and shows around Hastings and beyond.

Events include Hastings Musical Festival, Ore Stage Festival, and Brighton Time 2 Shine.
