Following the amazing success of Dance for Life 2019, the Solas Cancer Support Centre is delighted to announce the event will be returning in 2020. Application forms are now available should prospective dancers like to apply.

Tracy McDaid, Manager of the Solas Cancer Support Centre explains more: ‘To kick off 2020 we are looking for participants to undertake a 10 week training programme, staring in January.  The event is open to couples and also individuals who will be partnered with another dancer by our choreographer. Dances taught will include – Charleston, Disco, Salsa, Waltz, Jive to name a few!

No previous dancing experience is required and anyone over 16 years of age is welcome to apply.

Individual training sessions will take place on Tuesday and Thursday nights.  Each couple will be designated a time-slot on one of these nights.  The show opens with an energetic Group Dance and training for this takes place on five Sunday evenings during January and February.

This is a very exciting event that will help fund the activities and services that will be provided by the Solas Cancer Support Centre in 2020. Participants will be asked to fundraise €500.00 and we will offer as much support as possible to the dancers in their fundraising endeavours.  There is no obligation to sell tickets.

Local Choreographer Michelle Condon explains that every dancer will learn one dance as part of a couple and also a group dance.  Michelle looks forward to the event being great fun to take part in and guarantees that the show will “take the roof off The Theatre Royal on Friday 20th March 2020.”
