The dancing partners of Coláiste Ailigh's Strictly Come Dancing night have just days remaining until they hit the dancefloor. Find out who's paired with who here:
Coláiste Ailigh will present an evening of glittering entertainment this Saturday night in The Mount Errigal Hotel at 8pm. Strictly Come Dancing is being organised by the staff and Parents Association of the school, and they hope to raise funds to add to the already superb educational and extracurricular experience of their students.
Since January, ten couples have been rehearsing with professional choreographers Shiela Conway and Oliver Wilson. The couples are comprised of teachers, parents, past students and friends of the school and the competition is going to be close.
The Priomhoide, Michael Ó Giobúin, has praised the commitment and dedication of the dancers. “They have been rehearsing constantly, both as a group and in their pairs and we are beyond grateful for their support. This event has brought great energy and fun to the school community and I can guarantee that Saturday night will be a spectacle,” he said.
The night will be hosted and produced by Lee Gooch Productions with past student and radio personality Caoimhe Ní Catháil as co-host.
Adjudicators will be school Principal Michael Ó Giobúin, World Champion Dancer and past student Aoife Ní Loinsigh, Strictly winner and GAA star Brendan Devenney and local choreographer and teacher, Maria Rushe.
The committee are indebted to all sponsors and supporters of the event, and in particular, to the Diamond Sponsors:
The event is likely to sell out before Saturday.
