Challenge #1: Your Time to Shine!

Watch the video introduction from Melanie, Alison and Emma and find out more about Challenge #1!

How to take part

This is your time to shine!

This challenge is all about celebrating you!

Share something with us that you are proud of. This could be something you’ve already created or achieved. Or maybe it’s a lockdown hobby, a new skill you've learnt recently or that you managed to dance for the whole 30-minutes of We step outside and start to dance!


Below are some ideas to get you thinking: 

  • Get creative and produce something with the theme ‘Your Time to Shine’. You could create a new dance routine, a poem or a song. You could draw, paint, sew, collage, take photos or perhaps bake a cake! 

  • Share something that someone else has done and take this as a chance to shout about their shine.
