Showing the right moves
One of our match day charities, Down Syndrome Association Queensland (DSAQ), will be featured again this season on match day at Cbus Super Stadium with 13 children nominated by the association having the wonderful opportunity of walking onto the field with the Titans team on Saturday.
And to get them into the mood for the big event, some children who have been enjoying dance lessons at Street Jam at Bundall joined DSAQA ambassador Luke Douglas, and resident Titans dance mover extraordinaire Josh Hoffman, with a dance routine yesterday.
Alison Cotterell from Street Jam said the group of children had gained greatly in confidence and coordination over the past three years from the regular dancing, and they certainly showed that was the case before our cameras.

“A couple of children couldn’t perform at all at first but they have come a long way and it’s great for their confidence and good for muscle tone,” Alison said. “And they have so much fun.
“One girl has even progressed to the mainstream dance class which is wonderful.”
As well as the 13 children who will do the team run-on with the Titans players, another group have been selected by Down Syndrome Association NSW to accompany the South Sydney players onto the field.
This is the second year DSAQ have been one of our match day charities and the children will have almost 150 family and friends to cheer them on this Saturday at Cbus Super Stadium.
