Or if you are a couple who would both want to take on the challenge, now is your chance to get involved as Strictly Learn to Dance competition returns for what promises to be another spectacular year.

Weekly 45-minute Rock n Roll and Waltz tuition will soon begin every Wednesday evening.
This is given free of charge by Mark & Holly from Dancebasics dance school in Crewe.

All the practice and training will pay off, culminating in an extravagant Grand Finale Show at Nantwich Civic Hall on Sunday 18 May, during which a panel of judges will observe the couples as they dance, and crown the winning couple the ‘dancing king and queen’.

Participants will be asked to register and commit to raise a minimum sponsorship of £600 per couple. Tickets for the Grand Finale will be on sale from late April to raise money for the St Luke’s Hospice, which cares for sufferers of cancer and other life-threatening illnesses.

Nicola Jepson, Senior Fundraising Events Co-ordinator said:
“St Luke’s (Cheshire) Hospice’s Strictly Learn to dance has been a huge success in past years, raising over £40,000 for the hospice and we hope this year will be bigger and better than ever before”.
