Hunslet Emeralds are heading for Germany

In June this year The Hunslet Emeralds, the competitive dance squad from The Hunslet Club’s dance section, are competing on the international stage in Germany representing the club and the wider South Leeds community.

The girls are a credit to the club and community, they compete throughout the year and have proven very successful. Their victories, passion, and continuous commitment to the squad, each other and their training development and progression is inspirational to all the young dancers in our dance section.

The competition, The Summer All-Levels Championship, will take place in Dusseldorf, Germany and this will be the first time our dance section will have travelled and competed in another country.

The Emeralds will be taking both their junior and senior pom dance squads to the competition. It is an exciting time for our dance section and the club as a whole.

The Hunslet Emeralds have worked tirelessly to rehearse and train to perfect their routines and they cannot wait to perform on an international stage.

The Hunslet Emeralds are asking for as much help as possible to get every girl on the trip no matter their financial status or caregivers’ situation. The club is organising numerous fundraising events such as bag packing in supermarkets, car washes, sponsored activities as well as auctioning off memorabilia to raise funds to cover travel and accommodation costs.

They have set up a fundraising page as a plea to members of The Hunslet Club and our wider Hunslet and South Leeds community to spare as much as possible and contribute to this cause.

The Hunslet Club’s priority is helping young people achieve their full potential. A prime example of this in action is this competition. Please dig deep and help The Hunslet Emeralds go International.
