Successful applicants will be given 14 weeks of free expert tuition with professional dancers in preparation for the LIVE Grand Final on May 2nd 2020 at the Pyramids Centre, Southsea. Where they will get to perform in front of a live audience with a live band and celebrity judges. 

Debbie Pick, Fundraising and Events Officer stated:

“We are so looking forward to putting on this event. It will be a fantastic opportunity for fans of strictly to learn to dance, whilst raising money for your local Hospice. So, whether you’re a complete novice dancer or hoping to dust off your dancing shoes, we would love to hear from you today.”

Our only requirements are that applicants must be 16 years or older, be able to commit to weekly training on a Tuesday evening from January and raise our suggested minimum sponsorship of £500.”
