Star of BBC1’s Strictly Come Dancing Flavia Cacace is urging Cheshire couples to quick step up to register for our ‘Strictly Learn to Dance 2014’ 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 details for our hugely popular ‘Strictly Learn to Dance 2014’  have now been released.

We are hoping to attract 20 couples who over the course of 3 months will be transformed into confident dancers.

Flavia Cacace, one of the hugely popular BBC1 show’s long-standing professional dancers, has a word of encouragement for anyone considering signing up in aid of the hospice. She commented:

“Dancing is a fantastic way to keep fit, stay healthy, motivated and have fun at the same time you can show your support to a very worthwhile cause so put on your dancing shoes and get on the dance floor.”

It doesn’t matter if you have two left feet, as from 29 January 2014, regular Rock n Roll and Waltz tuition, of 45 minutes per week, will be given to all the participants in Crewe, every Wednesday evening. This tuition is given free of charge by Mark & Holly from Dancebasics dance school in Crewe. The event will culminate in a fabulous Grand Finale at Nantwich Civic Hall on Sunday, 18 May, in which a panel of judges will watch the couples dance and pick an overall winner.

Nicola Jepson, Senior Fundraising Events Co-Ordinator, said: “This event has been a tremendous success over the last two years and has raised over £40,000 for the Hospice. As well as being a successful fundraiser it is very much a fun event to take part in. We’re delighted to have Flavia’s support and I hope her words of encouragement will inspire couples to take to the floor for a wonderful cause.”
