Strictly Deise Dancing 2010 F

ollowing the phenomenal success of Strictly Deise Dancing in April 2009, Waterford Lions Club is delighted to announce that plans are well under way for this years event which will be bigger and better than before.

Lions Club president, Freddie Hatton, is excited about the line up this year and explains that after the competition last year the Club was inundated with requests from people wanting to take part. “In 2009 we had to do a bit of arm twisting to recruit participants, but after the huge success of the night and the very high standard of all the performances, we had no problem recruiting this year’s competitors.”

Event organiser, Lions member Patsey Sheridan, explained that a huge amount was collected from the night last year and this was done by the participants who were each are asked to raise €1,000. “We know we are asking a lot from our competitors - learning a dance and raising €1,000 and we really do appreciate the huge efforts they are all making.”

The Lion’s ‘dancers’ along with their professional partners - all under the expert tutelage of Betty Mulcahy, are practicing twice a week in the lead up to the competition in April. Due to the huge demand for tickets last year, this year’s event will take place over two nights - Wednesday 28th & Thursday 29th April in The Tower Hotel. The dancers will be judged over the two nights with the winners announced on the second night. “We were under huge pressure for ticket sales last year, so due to this demand, we are offering tickets on the first night to the general public – details on ticket outlets will be published at a later date,” says Patsey Sheridan.

Lion’s member and organiser Tracy McDaid says she doesn’t know who is more excited about the competition, herself or Betty! ‘We could not run this event without the help of Betty, who, along with Jean and Faith, give their time and expertise to turn our raw talent into mean, lean dancing machines. Betty partners our dancers with her competitive Irish dancers who are also excited to learn a new ballroom or Latin American dance and put our guys through their paces’ .
