Capital dance-off as Strictly Cymru steps towards finals.


Wales’ first fully inclusive dance event– Strictly Cymru – is set to hit Cardiff for a dance-off next week.

This will be the last regional heat of the competition, after which the 12 finalists will go to the Grand Final in Caernarfon on 11 May.

Competitors will go head-to-head on 18 and 19 March at the Sports Wales National Centre in Cardiff.

Previous heats across Wales have seen participants take on everything from fifties swing moves to hip hop.

Organised by leading disability charity Leonard Cheshire, Strictly Cymru invites disabled dancers from across the country to take part and show off their talent.

The event is pan disability and aims to improve health, wellbeing and access to sport for disabled people across Wales.

This is the second year of Strictly Cymru, following the success of last year’s competition. Last year’s participants reported significant improvements in their well-being as a result of taking part, and many have opted to dance again this year.

Sarah Thornton, returning to take part in the regional heats earlier this year, said:

“I really enjoyed taking part for the second year and am looking forward to dancing with my friends for the final. I love to dance.”
