AJ & Curtis Pritchard launch Dance Along challenge for Sport Relief

4th March 2020

Brothers and dance superstars, AJ Pritchard (Strictly Come Dancing) and Curtis Pritchard (The Greatest Dancer) are hoping to inspire people across the UK to get dancing with them and raise life-changing money for Sport Relief. The dancing duo have choreographed an exclusive, never seen before, 90-second dance routine for the public to attempt to learn and perform for their friends and family in aid of Sport Relief. The step-by-step tutorial is available to download now from bbc.uk/sportrelief(opens in new window) and features some exciting sporting dance moves including ‘The Lightning Bolt’ (made famous in 2008 by Usain Bolt) and Peter Crouch’s famous football celebration move ‘The Robot’. AJ and Curtis Pritchard said: “We’re so proud to be involved in this year’s Sport Relief and as professional dancers we understand just how much of an impact it can have to inspire and change lives for the better. “We’re really excited to lend our support and we can’t wait to see how you all get on giving it a go – so please film yourselves and share the videos online with our #danceforsportrelief hashtag. It’s a really easy way to fundraise for Sport Relief – you can dance in the office, at home or even in the pub!” AJ and Curtis will perform the dance routine live during the Sport Relief Night of TV, on BBC One, from 7pm on Friday 13th March, which may even feature some of the fantastic dancing videos posted by the public. Money raised by Sport Relief tackles issues such as domestic abuse, mental health stigma, homelessness and child poverty, both in the UK and around the world.
