19 September 2016
Hit TV show Strictly Come Dancing is once again taking over the television screens of the nation. Over 10 million people tuned in to watch the launch show, and now fans of the show can guarantee an experience like no other and be taught by the professional stars of Strictly Come Dancing themselves – just like the celebrities!
The Strictly competition kick’s off this Friday with fans eager to get their annual fix of sequins, incredible dance routines, controversial comments from the judges, and a few celebrity mishaps. For those that feel inspired when watching the show, Donahey’s offer the perfect experience – a Dancing with the Stars Weekend which gives fans four hours of fabulous ballroom and Latin dance lessons with the stars of Strictly as part of the fantastic range of entertainment on offer.
With the likes of newlywed couple Karen and Kevin Clifton on hand to help, as well as fan favourites Aljaz Skorjanec and Janette Manrara, guests are promised a weekend of dancing delights, especially when the evening performance start. Dance enthusiasts will be treated to three spectacular showcases from the professionals as part of up close and personal experiences complete with dance-floor side tables throughout the weekend. If that wasn’t enough, they’ll be able to take part in seven hours of tailored dance classes to suit their ability as well as attend a sensational Black Tie Ball – to try putting their new found skills to the test as a 15-piece ballroom and Latin big band play.
Paul Donahey, organiser of the weekends, said, “Strictly Come Dancing has become something of a national treasure and a winter TV fixture in households across the country. But the fun of the ballroom doesn’t have to end when the glitter ball trophy is awarded. With a weekend packed with dance classes and showcases, anyone getting withdrawal symptoms after Strictly has ended can come along to one of our fantastic weekends with the promise of an incredible experience.”
It’s not just guests that have an incredible time on the weekend breaks either – the professionals love taking part just as much. World Mambo champion, Karen Clifton, said, “We absolutely love coming here and every time Donahey’s invites us we say yes.” While 19-time Ballroom and Latin champion, Aljaz Skorjanec, also commented that it is the shows at Donahey’s that he looks forward to the most all year.
Donahey’s 2017 4-star weekend breaks are already being snapped up by Strictly fans, whether guests choose to attend a weekend in Staffordshire, Berkshire, Manchester or Warwickshire they’ll be enjoying their weekend amid beautiful surroundings in carefully selected locations.
