All groups create a dance routine between three and eight minutes long based on the Red Cross’ work – that could be anything from first aid to child soldiers to the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.
What about the fundraising?
We ask all groups to raise at least £50 for the Red Cross, which will help save and change lives in the UK and overseas. There are awards for all fundraising achievements over £100.
