‘My half-sister decided we would take up Spanish dancing for fun and 12 years later I’m still doing it,’ the 31-year-old said.

‘There’s something about Spanish dance.

‘There’re so many parts to it.

‘Flamenco is an incredible art form; you get to be part of the culture.’

Ms Pratt, of Swanbourne, is part of Danza Viva and will be performing at a Spanish lunch fundraiser for Nakuru Hope on Sunday, October 6 from 11.30am at Rowing WA, Mt Pleasant.

Nakuru Hope, run by South Fremantle’s Susan Saleeba, provides food, education, clean water, housing and hope for people in the Kaptembwa slums of Kenya.
