YOU can usually find Daniela Sciuto working at the Bendigo Bank, but next Saturday she’ll be counting the beat.

Ms Sciuto has teamed up with Dance HQ to take part in the Stars of Orange Dance for Cancer.

Ms Sciuto, who has already raised $2130, has signed up in memory of her grandparents who had passed away from cancer in their 60s.

“Like everyone I’ve been touched by cancer,” she said.

“For me [Stars of Orange] was no brainer.”

Ms Sciuto encouraged people to get behind the cause.

“Unfortunately cancer is a common thing,” she said.

“I’m passionate about finding a cure. Every little bit helps.”

Ms Sciuto said her routine was “going to be a bit of a surprise”.

“I’m going to the dance school at least once a week and practicing for countless hours at home.”

“I’m confident I can pull it off.”

Ms Sciuto will host a fundraiser on Sunday with a screening of Rough Night (starring Scarlett Johansson) at Odeon 5 Cinemas at 2.45pm.

Movie tickets are $20 or $25 for a ticket with popcorn and a drink.

Visit the Bendigo Bank to purchase a movie ticket.
