LINING UP TO HELP: Members of the South Coast Dance group during their Leila Rose Foundation fundraiser at the Port Fairy RSL Hall to end term two.

A GROUP of Port Fairy dancers have used their talents to raise money for a good cause.

South Coast Dance finished term two with a special fundraising effort at the Port Fairy RSL Hall.

Over $600 was raised for the Leila Rose Foundation.

Group leader Riahna Byron said it was exciting to get such a positive response.

“It was a really nice thing for the kids to be involved in,” Ms Byron said.

“We talked about what the Leila Rose Foundation is about and how it is good to help with things like this when we can.

“I think it also showed the kids how lucky they are to be healthy and happy.”

The group has 80 dancers, aged between 2-15, and undertake dance styles including jazz, ballet and hip hop.

Members of the group wore pink on the night and made gold coin donations while $5 of their normal class fee also went to the cause. 

A sweets table was also set up where lollies could be purchased.

During the school holiday break, a number of dancers from the group have competed at the Warrnambool Eisteddfod, achieving some strong results.
