Sign up for hospice's dance-off

A CHILDREN'S hospice is searching for couples who fancy themselves as the next Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers to take part in Strictly Get Dancing at the Musicals.

Last year’s Strictly Get Dancing winners Johnny Fantauzzo and Sarah Jepson.

Martin House Hospice Care for Children and Young People, which is based at Aspire in Leeds, is hosting the event on Saturday, November 9, but couples need to sign up before September 22.

Sara Cracknell, events fundraiser at Martin House, said: "We’ve all probably secretly dreamed of recreating a classic movie dance – whether it’s a classic Fred and Ginger number or a modern film like La La Land.

“Strictly Get Dancing at the Musicals is your chance to make that dream a reality – while raising money for Martin House at the same time.”

Couples who sign up to Strictly Get Dancing will attend six lessons at the Danceology studios in Wetherby, where dance teacher Jean Harvey will put them through their paces to learn a Latin and a ballroom dance, with a movie musical theme.

It costs £50 per couple to sign up.
