Dancers Antoinette Brooks-Daw and Jeremy Curnier have been having some fun at Headingley Stadium today to celebrate world champions Leeds Rhinos supporting our Sponsor a Dancer campaign.

Leeds Rhinos and England star Ryan Hall, man of the match in Leeds Rhino’s recent World Club Championship victory, met Antoinette and Jeremy to learn some ballet steps. It turned out that Ryan was a natural when it comes to doing lifts and soon he was not only holding up the World Club Championship trophy but also Antoinette!

Antoinette also became the first person to take to the rugby field in tutu when Ryan taught Antoinette and Jeremy how to make the perfect pass.
