Come Dance With us

24 dancers will take to the grand ballroom floor at The Atlantic Hotel on Sunday 5th May to find out who will lift the much coveted glitterball trophy!

After 8 weeks of training our stars will showcase their dancing prowess at the grand finale.

Aside from the huge commitment and dedication to the dance training, each dancer has chosen a fund of Royal Cornwall Hospitals Charity to support.
