Agrestic Grocer’s Beau Baddock has been knocked from the Stars of Orange Dance for Cancer fundraiser leaderboard, but he says he’s not perturbed.
“I’m happy to have the challenge, that’s what it’s all about,” he said.
Once a week for the past six weeks Mr Baddock has met with Owner of Spinnin’ Pole Studio Emma Sawyers for his dance lesson with a difference.
He said in that time his skill level has progressed from a one out of 10 to about a five out of 10.
“I’m having a lot of fun, I’ve dragged the kids along and my wife is thinking about doing lessons too,” he said.
The dance event will take place at Orange Function Centre on June 2.
The stars will compete for the highest fundraiser, highest score, people’s choice award and judge’s choice.
On Wednesday night Agrestic Grocer will invite six musicians to play an acoustic set at the venue.
All of the $3000 in ticket sales has been donated to Mr Baddock’s fundraiser tally.
Mr Baddock has organised a raffle ticket competition to be drawn on June 2, with prizes including two night accommodation for two people at Dragonfly cottages, with all meals provides at a range of venues across town.
