'When I Dance' Written by Eileen Kenny 
In December 2016, Parkinson’s UK held a National dance competition, entitled: ‘When I Dance.’ 
There were different categories to enter and Natalie Speake, our own dance tutor from the Halifax branch (who runs the Dance4Fun session) decided to enter Valerie Harrison, in the Solo section.
Can you imagine the euphoria at the dance class where it was announced that Valerie’s dance had been shortlisted to the final three? We would have to wait a few days for the result…............. But it came and YES, Valerie’s Dance had indeed won the competition!
A few words from Valerie… 
"I've had all day to think about the results of the competition and I keep coming back to the fact that it's a wonderful thing to be able to promote what can be achieved regardless of physical disabilities. The group has shown me that it is okay to be sad, to cry if you want to and let emotions out if that's what you want to do. I feel blessed to have discovered you all and very grateful for the acceptance, friendship and understanding that Bruce and I have experienced. If there is any way we can help or promote the work of the Thursday group, we will, as I would like to see others in my position benefit.” 
…and a few words from Natalie... 
"It was a real affirmation of the hard work and determination that goes into the running of a dance class for people with Parkinson's and how beneficial dance can be for people of all ages and abilities. 
I've been asked by the director of the Parkinson's Dance Network UK to lead a workshop in April for other dance artists and group facilitators with two other dance artists. The national recognition for my teaching is wonderful and exciting.” 
Part of Valerie's prize is to spend time in London with the amazing judges who loved Valerie and the film so much ...

Dance4Fun is held at Elim Pentecostal Church, Hall Street, Halifax, HX1 5AY, on Thursdays from 10.30am (for refreshments and chatter) 
Dance begins at 11.00am until 12 noon
