A bunch of talent has come together to help S3 Studios – including a stuntman from Marvel films, Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer act choreographer and finalist from Got to Dance.

To save the studio, owners are holding a Big Fundraiser this weekend at Causeway School from 10am until 7pm.

There will be a jam-packed day full of workshops to raise funds for the urban arts and dance studio which has become a haven for youngsters but is facing imminent closure if it doesn’t raise enough money to stay afloat.

A range of workshops, a choreography competition and more entertainment will be available.

The workshops will include: hip hop, popping, locking, breaking, R&B, crew choreo, funk fit, zumba, yoga, tap, contemporary, flips and tricks, and Capoeira.

Organisers say they will be held by some of the best dancers and choreographers in the UK, including Tashan Muir, who choreographed Britain’s Got Talent finalists Entity Allstars.
