Three cheers for YouCan!

A YouCan grant has helped Pauline Bennett, aka ‘Jazzi P’, to bring cheerleading combined with dance to young people at a price they can afford.

Coaching performance and competition teams for over 20 years from Wolverhampton to Barbados, Pauline is training youngsters aged between 11-18 years of age to perform at Wolverhampton’s annual City Show in West Park this July.

She said: “My main aim is to bring dance to the community and, thanks to Youcan, I can provide a good quality service and keep the cost down to just £2.50 per person. The grant application was really, really easy and straightforward and I used it to help with the public liability insurance and to rent the space I need.

“I like to bring different experiences to youngsters and dance builds their self esteem and social network. I’m delighted to say there is now a list of others who want to start in April.”
