There is still time to sign up and shimmy into the spotlight for this year’s sparkling St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice’s ‘Strictly Learn to Dance 2013’ fundraising event.
If you’ve always dreamed of being a dance diva or you’re keen to lead your partner round the dance floor with grace, now is your chance to get involved as the deadline for the Winsford Hospice’s hugely popular ‘Strictly Learn to Dance’ extravaganza has been extended.
Whether you’re a couple who would love to learn to dance or an individual, who would be happy to be paired up with a partner who is learning to dance too, the event will see up to 20 dance couples transformed into confident dancers.
It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet, as from 22 January, 2013, regular Salsa and Tango tuition, of 45 minutes per week, will be given all the participants in Tarporley every Tuesday evening. The event will culminate in a fun Grand Finale Show at Nantwich Civic Hall on Sunday, April 28, in which a panel of judges will watch the couples dance and pick an overall winner!
Participants will be asked to register and commit to try to raise sponsorship of £300. St Luke’s knows that money is tight this year and asks that people just try to do their best to help fundraise. Tickets for the Grand Finale will be on sale from March to raise money for the St Luke’s Hospice, which cares for sufferers of cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.
Liz Wells, Fundraising Events Co-Ordinator, said: “We’ve extended the deadline so that even more dancers, especially gentlemen, can take part! Gents we REALLY need you, we have 7 ladies waiting for partners”
“The first Strictly Learn to Dance event was a huge success raising over £20,000 profit for our wonderful Hospice and I think we can do even better in 2013.”
