So, you want to know how to dance with Anton Du Beke? Well, we could tell you, but then we’d have to…endure your eternal thanks. And quite frankly, we’re busy people. Those amazing Weekend Breaks with the Stars of Strictly don’t organise themselves, you know?
As you can image this sharply dressed man is in popular demand. He has 207k followers on Twitter alone, another 93.6k on Instagram and 26.5k on Facebook. To be honest, we’re surprised Anton’s as grounded as he is, but we can confirm from working with him for many years that he is charm personified.
Anyway, enough about our celebrity connections. You want to know how to dance with the master of Ballroom. Okay, we’ve given this a lot of thought and we have the answer. However, we appreciate people like choice so before we share, here are two (not necessarily) plausible ways to meet your dance floor hero.
Get on Anton’s radar
Whilst Anton loves his adoring fans, you are, to put it bluntly, just another face in the crowd. In an over-subscribed world of Anton fans you really need to make your presence known. Now we’re not just talking a big smile, an energetic wave or a coy hello, we’re talking stand out from the crowd antics. However, revealing a large tattoo of Anton’s face on your back probably isn’t the best route to take. But something that shows you mean business is surely going to impress him, right? So, come up with something creative and memorable and maybe, just maybe, you’ll get his attention. The best opportunities to make yourself known to him are at shows and book signings.
The downside: you may get arrested or worse still, be on the receiving end of a restraining order.
Become a celebrity
Now if your antics fail to pique Anton’s interest, but do attract the attention of the press, then you’re possibly halfway to becoming a celebrity. Of course you may have to embellish your back-story to make it more newsworthy and make numerous appearances on chat shows. But once you reach celebrity status you may be approached to appear on Strictly Come Dancing. Now, there’s still no guarantee that you’ll be partnered up with Anton, but if you ensure you’re one of the worst dancers then there’s a huge chance.
The downside: the public may kick you out in week 2.
Book a Donahey’s Weekend Break with the Stars of Strictly
Now if you want to keep your integrity intact (like the good man himself), booking a Donahey’s Weekend Break with the marvellous Anton Du Beke is the answer. That way you can avoid a criminal record, a restraining order and divulging details of your private life on morning telly.
You’ll enjoy a splendid weekend away at a 4* or 5* hotel where you can take an Anton and Erin dance workshop and watch an amazing Anton and Erin dance showcase from front row seats in a stunning ballroom. You’ll also be able to take more snaps of Anton than you can bore your friends with at our ‘Red Carpet Photo Calls’. Plus, you’ll get to experience this hilarious charmer’s fun personality firsthand in our Q&A sessions. And finally, there’s a HUGE chance you’ll just bump into him in the hotel. You heard us right.
The downside: there really is no downside to a Donahey’s Weekend Break with Anton Du Beke. But don’t just take our word for it, book your places now and see for yourself in 2020.
