Bay FM’s Danny Salfield is one of the featured ‘stars’ in the Dance for Cancer this weekend.
Over the last few months booties have been shaking, and hearts racing, all getting ready for the big reveal this Saturday! The Echo caught up with this self-published author and longtime host of popular community radio program Sandpit Radio Show.
What’s your dance history?
My dance history coincides with some of my poor life choices but often resulted in critical acclaim from my peers.
What are your personal dance highlights?
A couple of one-man flashmobs at weddings.
How has Hayley Sturgess from Dance Lab in Bangalow been getting you up to scratch?
Hayley is a dance goddess and has been very patient with me. She is full of energy and always smiling.
What has been your biggest achievement in your rehearsals so far?
Nearly completing the Dirty Dancing Lift but not quite…
Why on Earth did you decide to do this?
Because Hayley asked me and I always like to say Yes rather than No. I think that in itself is a very important way to live.
What will people think when they see you dancing?
It’s fairly typical of me to be wanting attention.
Are you going to keep going? Has it changed your attitude toward your future career in dance?
It hasn’t altered my attitude toward a career in dance but I would like to keep dancing for the exercise.
What is your routine?
It is a Dirty Dancing medley. Very emotional stuff.
