Cheshire East Council Leader and Cabinet Member take part in Online dance video

A project, aimed at raising the profile of the London 2012 Olympic Games, is urging us to take to the dance floor.

‘20 Past 12’ will take place on Friday, July 2, 2010. It is a national event which is being celebrated locally through a mass dance extravaganza.

The dance event is the brain-child of The Young Ambassadors of Cheshire East’s School Sport Partnerships (Macclesfield, Crewe and Congleton). Together, with Cheshire East Council’s Healthy Schools’ team, they commissioned Cheshire Dance to create a fun routine.

Tens of thousands of people are set to take part in Cheshire East alone; each of them performing a specially designed, easy-to-learn routine which they will perform at exactly 20 minutes past 12… and YOU could be part of it.

How do I learn the routine?

Simply go online to or to register your group and you will then be forwarded to a video, featuring Cheshire East Council’s Chief Executive, Erika Wenzel and Cabinet Member, Councillor Andrew Knowles rehearsing the routine along with volunteers from across Cheshire East.

How do I take part on the day?

Simply learn the routine online and perform it in your own home or garden; OR

Get a group of friends, family or work colleagues together and perform it in a venue of your choice; OR

Get yourself down to the Westfields building of Cheshire East Council from 12noon and join in the fun.

Cheshire East Councillor, Andrew Knowles, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Health and Wellbeing, said:

“It’s important we all get involved with the 2012 Olympic Games as early as possible; to get active and lend our support.”

“Learning and performing the routine was easy to do and great fun. I do hope as many people as possible join in. With two left feet, I doubt I will be making the final of Strictly Come Dancing anytime soon but, the message is, if I can do it, you can do it!”


Hundreds of school children will perform the dance during the official opening of Sir William Stanier School Leisure Centre on July 2 from 12.20pm.
