Razzamataz Sheffield have really got behind students by taking part in one of the toughest races in the UK. Helen, Principal of the part-time theatre school, Melanie their Assistant Principal and parents/friends of the school Daniel, Ellen, Emma, Tammy, Jonathan, Rebecca and Kate all challenged themselves to the max by completing the infamous Tough Mudder!

Tough Mudder is an endurance event series in which participants attempt a 11 mile long run through a military-style obstacle course. It was designed and created by a British Harvard Business School post graduate and a former corporate lawyer, and tests mental as well as physical strength.

The Razzamataz Sheffield team entered the event with other Razzamataz schools in the network to raise funds for the theatre school’s charity Future Fund, which has been set up to support Razzamataz students going on to study at full time performing arts in college.

We are thrilled to announce that so far we have raised a whopping £1640.00!

As part of its commitment to its students, Razzamataz will help finance a scholarship to train and will be offered to an exceptionally talented and dedicated student who attends one of the part-time schools.

“It’s an incredible achievement considering that many of those who took part have never even run this distance before let alone had to climb in mud, crawl through tiny passageways and throw themselves into icy waters,” said Helen, Principal of Razzamataz Sheffield. “The day was fantastic; challenging, impossible at times, cold, wet and very muddy but overall it was a lot of fun and we are delighted to have raised funds for our students and we certainly will give them a lot to laugh about once we show them the photos.”

The Future Fund auditions will take place at Pineapple Dance studios in front of a panel of industry experts including a member of street dance crew Urban Strides and Jonny Bowles, a choreographer and performer from a plethora of shows including Billy Elliot as well as being the resident children’s director at The Sound of Music.

Razzamataz Sheffield offers a wide range of performing arts styles for children with classes in dance, drama and singing. Students experience various genres from classic West End musical theatre through to pop singing and street dance. In all sessions, the emphasis is on having fun and bringing out the creativity and unique potential in each and every student.

There is still some availability to join the school and find out about all the opportunities available. To book a free trial session, contact Helen on sheffield@razzamataz.co.uk or 07979 189177. For more information, visit sheffield.razzamataz.co.uk.
