Tickets Available For Sheffield Dance Show

Tickets are available for the charity dance show ‘Puttin on the Ritz’ at St Francis of Assisi church in Sheffield.

The event will feature a variety of performances from dance groups of both ladies and children, all who have been training for a year.


There are four shows on Saturday 25 February at 3pm, Thursday 2 March at 8pm, Friday 3 March at 8pm and Saturday 4 March at 3pm. All will take place at the church hall on Sandygate Road.

Dance teacher Sarah Bennett has helped the dance groups learn their various routines. She said: “A lot of hard work has gone into this, the dancers have all been very committed for 12 months.

“There will be lots of variety and even one routine with top hats and canes!

Founding Director of the Dance Club and CAFOD supporter Grazyna Swales commented “The St Francis church hall will be transformed and everything that we raise will go to support CAFOD’s Syrian Refugee Appeal.  As well as giving our community the opportunity to be entertained and have fun, I feel very strongly that we must remember those who are in need ”


Also performing at the shows are a volunteer band and other solo artists.

Tickets, priced at £6  for adults and £3 for children between 3 and 12 years,  can be bought after Sunday mass at St Francis of Assisi church or by calling Grazyna Swales on 0114 230 8196.
