Ballyshannon Musical Society are again teaming up with Aodh Ruadh to put on a dance extravaganza in the Great Northern Hotel.

After the phenomenal success of last years ‘Strictly Come Dancing’, it was agreed to give it another twirl. The gala competition takes place this Saturday, November 3 and has a whole new cast of local celebrities vying to be crowned Strictly Champions 2012.

Liam Thomas and Mary Hoey’s shoes will be hard to fill but there are ten couples hoping to emulate their success of last year.

Once again Suzanne Byrne has been teaching the dancers everything she knows but she can’t be held accountable for some of the crazy DIY moves being thrown by some!

The reports from the rehearsals suggest that the Democrat’s very own twinkle toes, Thomas Gallagher, is putting years of hard work on the dance floors at O’Gorman Arms and Carolan’s of Laghey to good use. There are rumours that Thomas wants to dance to his signature tune, American Pie, but the organisers told him he couldn’t have a ten minute slot!

On a serious note, all the dancers are in putting in a huge amount of time and effort training. It promises to be a great night with two local organisations that deserve your support asking for your support.
