The Muiriosa Foundation is proud to present this fun event as a joint fundraising drive for The Tanyard Resource Centre, Respite Support Services, Tullamore Community Homes and Saoirse an Uisce, each a very worthy recipient of this unique event.
The search is on to recruit the dancers to participate in the first ever event of its kind in this area. The show does have a lot of similarities to Strictly Come Dancing but there is a little ‘twist’. The event will be a fun evening of entertainment with a most unsuspecting group of people whom you would ever expect to see on stage let alone dancing on stage in front of an audience.
The Strictly Jigs & Reels show will take place in Tullamore Court Hotel on Friday November 16.
Following several months of planning and organising for this massive event by the organising committee the lucky dancers chosen to participate will undergo several weeks of training and will learn one group dance and also one solo dance with a partner. The interesting thing here is that the dancers do not know who their dancing partner will be until later on into the training sessions.
An announcement will be made soon as to who the lucky dancers are and following that the tickets will go on sale for the main event on November 16.
The extravaganza will be highlighted at a launch night, when the dancers will find out who their dancing partner will be. Such is the mix of personalities of the dancers we are in for a treat to see these volunteers strut their stuff on stage, as they may not have been picked for their dancing skills!
On the night of the main event, Friday November 16 in Tullamore Court Hotel, there will be a panel of judges to review each performance and then give their comments before giving the couple their score. There will also be audience voting on the night which will have an impact on the overall score for each couple. It will also be a night of glitz and glamour as our dancers will be in full costume.
There is a huge support for this event from the dancers, their families and friends, so much so that there is already a massive pre order of tickets in place before they have even been printed
Tickets will be available from all of the dancers, the committee and the Hotel.
