Dance Your Blues away launched on the 5th April 2017.
Non Dancers were selected from applicants all who were representatives of the UK Emergency & Essential Services they were been given 6 months to learn to dance.
Following this time, they gathered in Blackpool on the 22nd September for the grand competition which saw 3 finalist chosen by the judges.
On the evening of the 23rd September, the three finalist competed in the world famous Blackpool Tower Ballroom, in front of 500 guests at the Our Blue Light Charity Ball – where our Dance Your Blues Away 2017 champion was crowned.
Janet was thrilled to help coach some of the couples and to be the head judge yes the Len Goodman of the event.
She was approached earlier this year to help at this event and as her first job was a nurse in the mental health sector how could she say no, over the past few months she has meet a number of dancers and has coached 4 couples for this great charity.
She’s had great fun teaching a number of dancers and choosing the music, steps and story they will be dancing. The couples are all lovely and very dedicated to both the dancers and the cause. The dancers have given up many hours to rehearse and practice over the months and we are all looking forward to the competition.
