Students at Ariel Dance Academy got to wear pyjamas and onesies for their classes at the weeekend in aid of Children in Need’s Pudsey Bear.
Some 480 students at the academy’s four Sussex-based schools all donated money for the privelege, raising £523 for the BBC’s Children in Need charity bonanza which takes place tomorrow (Friday).
“It was such a great morning, and to raise such a massive sum, is incredible,” said Nicci Hopson, academy director.
This weekend, the theatre group, which has schools in Burgess Hill, Steyning, East Grinstead and Crawley, is holding open auditions for Les Miserables.
They take place on Sunday (November 18) at Oakmeeds Community College in Burgess Hill.
The musical is due to be staged at Chequer Mead Theatre, East Grinstead, on October 22 to 26 next year (2013)
