The work of Accrington-based charity DanceSyndrome was celebrated with yet another award.

The DanceSyndrome team was chosen as the recipient of the People’s Choice Award at the One Dance UK Awards in an online awards ceremony which took place on Friday on YouTube and Facebook.

DanceSyndrome is a dance charity that delivers inclusive dance workshops and dance leadership training, as well as inspiring performances that demonstrate a focus on ability rather than disability. The charity has won many local and national awards in the past including, most recently, a Queen’s Award for Voluntary Services in 2019, which is the voluntary group equivalent of an MBE.

DanceSyndrome managing director Julie Nicholson said “The DanceSyndrome Team are absolutely thrilled to receive the People’s Choice Awards. It makes us especially proud that this was chosen by a public vote. To win a prestigious award like this at a national level, and in a mainstream dance awards ceremony is testament to the hard work of our team.”
