WHEN STRICTLY Come Dancing returned to the our television screens last week, twelve dancing couples in Swords were playing closer attention than most.
Some 24 brave and talented souls from Swords have been lined up for their very own version of the popular dance show to be staged at the City North Hotel on November 16. They all have a connection to Gaelscoil Bhrian Boroimhe and the event is aimed at raising some badly needed funds for the school. The twelve pairs of dancing partners are already in training for the big night and no doubt, the return of the television show may help them tell a waltz from a foxtrot.
Local celebrity judges will provide commentary and judge the competition. It will also be possible for friends and family to vote and just as in the television show, it's a combination of the judge's expert eye and a popularity contest that will decide the winners. There will be a raffle and opening and interval acts on the night which promised to be a memorable occasion for everyone who attends. Excitement is building and the parent committee, who are organising the event, hope to raise a significant sum to help the school. It will be a unforgettable night of glamour, glitz, sequins and certainly one not be missed.
