Strictly Stafford is back…Are you in the mood for dancing?

2018 competitors and judges.

Katharine House Hospice is looking for individuals or couples to learn to dance and perform at our grand final on Friday 23rd November at the Staffordshire County Showground.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to enjoy 8 x 1 hour lessons with a professional dancer; a full dress rehearsal and a place in our very own Strictly finale with your hair and make-up all taken care of too.

Once again the hospice is working with Danny Bell of The Ballroom Company to ensure that the tuition, support and advice the amateur dancers receive will be second to none. Danny Bell said:

“I take great joy in introducing people to the enjoyment of dancing. It’s wonderful to see people progress and enjoy the physical and mental benefits that dancing has to offer. Add to this the fact that Strictly Stafford brings in valuable funds to keep the hospice toe-tapping along and the whole event is a must in anyone’s calendar.”

The fee to enter is just £50 per person or £75 per couple and participants commit to raising sponsorship of at least £300 per person or £500 per couple. There are 12 dance places up for grabs.

The hospice is now gathering expressions of interest and you have until Thursday, 30th August to put your name in the hat… All you have to do is email your name, address, email address and reason for wanting to take part in Strictly 2018 to

Events Fundraiser, Lisa Carson said:

“I’m extremely excited to be working on Strictly Stafford with Danny again this year. Last year’s event was incredible and broke all records for the hospice raising a massive £25,000 and so we are hoping to better that again this year. If anyone is even remotely interested in learning to dance I would highly recommend they sign up! Every single person who has taken part previously has absolutely loved it!”
