10 amazing fundraising acts dance their hearts out for CAUSE

An amazing troupe of dancing fundraisers took to the Ballroom dancefloor at the Europa Belfast and gave their guests a truly night to remember with their toe-tapping' routines in Strictly Copacabana 2022.

For just over 10 weeks, our fundraisers have faced exceptional challenges due to the pandemic.  Our choreographer and
dance instructor Sonja Devlin, showed her commitment to the event and to CAUSE by accommodating one to one tuition, dealing with extended dancers' absence due to COVID and constantly reprogramming to allow for all the challenges!  We extend our thanks to her assistant Kirsty Phillips for ensuring all the dancers safety and health and for videoing rehearsals and the performances on the night and supporting all the dancers throughout the 10 weeks.

The evening was compered by one of our favourite Ambassadors, Kelly Brown, who opened the show with 'I have nothing' and ensured the show ran smoothly for the audience, the dancers and the charity!  She closed the show with a very appropriate number, 'Last Dance'!  Thank you so much for stepping in at such a late stage!

10 fabulous acts entertained and definitely did not disappoint the crowd!  Click on the pics to view their routines!
