Strictly Learn to Dance Winners!

Strictly Learn to Dance Winners!

  Published to Event News on Apr 16, 2018

On Saturday 14th April, our participants took to the dancefloor in the Premier Suite of Bolton White's Hotel and showcased their social foxtrot, quickstep and one of four specialist dances; Salsa, Cha-Cha, Argentine Tango and Rock N Roll. The event is set to raise a fantastic £40,000 for Bolton Hospice.

The winners were chosen by a judging panel consisting of two professional dance experts, Adrian, one of our hospice trustees, and Apprentice stars Michaela Wain and Harrison Jones

Christina & Steve were crowned the Strictly Champions on the night. Christina said, “It’s very surprising. We were happy with just winning the tango. It hasn’t sunk in yet. Everyone has been lovely. At the beginning, it was just 19 other couples we did not know, but now we are all friends. We have won it for everyone. If they hadn’t pushed us, we would not have worked this hard.”
