‘Too Fat’ Troupe Teach Kids To Dance | SHAKE MY BEAUTY

Published September 27, 2019 0 Plays

Rumble Founder of plus-size dance group 4Thirty-Two, Charity Holloway, launched a summer camp for girls ages 8-13 – and it’s time for their big performance! After five weeks of rehearsals, the young girls took to the stage to perform a fierce dance routine to their friends and family. Cheered on and coached by the Ladies Of 432, the girls had a chance to shine and prove they are body confident. Barcroft TV follows the girls on performance day – from the last rehearsal and pep talks through to backstage nerves. Charity’s mission to install body confidence in young women comes from her own struggles with self-confidence in her teenage years and inspired her to organise the 432 Body Positive Summer Dance Experience. She said: “As a child, I had a lot of self-confidence issues and it really stemmed from being plus-size. That is just one of the many things that kids go through nowadays. So I really feel like kids need a positive mentorship at an early age to install within them who they are. Especially when we're living in a world where you don't really see different body types in the dance field.”
