Freestyle The Night Away With Marc After all of the fun of learning new dance styles, to end the night at Let’s Danceathon 2018 we’ll have a freestyle session so you can throw any shapes you like to the terrific tunes from our resident DJ, Marc Atkins… My interest in Music and DJing began at school, a couple of friends and I were asked to provide the music at our school’s youth club. When I was around 16 years old, I taught myself the finer art of ‘beat mixing’ and by the age of 19 I performed for the first time in a local nightclub. For the next 20 years I worked in many nightclubs and wine bars across the Midlands, promoting my own events on some occasions. I also worked on a Saturday afternoon show on a local community radio. In recent years I have slightly changed direction by becoming a mobile DJ. My first love is Dance/House music but I have a very eclectic taste, my catalogue of music spans all genres from Motown to Disco, Pop to Rock and more. This will be reflected in the music I’ll be playing at Let’s Danceathon! There aren’t many tickets left so book today to avoid missing out on what will be an incredible evening of fun and dancing… www.birminghamhospice.org.uk/lets-danceathon!
