 Celebrity dance judge Craig Revel Horwood is calling all primary school teachers and children to enter a national dance competition and win their place on the first ever Bone Factor Tour in October! Winning schools receive an action packed day to help build stronger bones, with a dance lesson from Craig and exciting nutritional activities.

Craig Revel Horwood comments, “I’ve teamed up with the National Osteoporosis Society for the second year because dance is a great form of exercise, and a fun way to teach children the importance of keeping their bones healthy. We are inviting primary schools from across the country to join the Bone Factor challenge and compete for a chance to Boogie for their Bones on tour with me. So if you think you’ve got the Bone Factor then get dancing, because the search is on!”

The dance judge has teamed up with the National Osteoporosis Society once again as part of the charity’s Bones4Life programme. The initiative encourages primary school children to learn how to look after their bones from a young age, which is vital in ensuring they remain strong and healthy later in life. Last year, Craig worked with the charity to get dance schools to Boogie for their Bones. This year, Craig Revel Horwood and the Bone Factor Tour are targeting primary schools with their health messages and fun dance routine.

The Bone Factor Tour encourages children to get dancing from a young age, and Craig has created fantastic Boogie for your Bones dance steps and a dance plan and video to help explain the moves! Dance is a great form of weight-bearing exercise that builds bone strength from a young age. It’s also great fun! 

Entering the Bone Factor Tour competition is easy. Schools simply send in a recording of their own Boogie for Your Bones dance that uses some of the steps available on The entries can be a few photographs or a video and will be judged by Craig. Six lucky primary schools will earn their place on the tour for an unforgettable day about bone health.  The Bone Factor Tour team will be visiting schools during the week of World Osteoporosis Day, on 20th October 2009. Entries will be judged regionally and chosen according to strict judging criteria.

All entries must be received by Friday 25th September 2009 and sent to:, or post to: Bone Factor Tour competition, Good Relations, 26 Southampton Buildings, London, WC2A 1PQ.
