Strictly For Croí

4 Nov @ 8:00 pm - 11:30 pm

Dancers Needed! Please email Mike@croi.ie if you are interested.

Croí the Heart & Stroke Charity is delighted to bring our first “Strictly for Croí Fundraiser” to the Galway Bay Hotel on Saturday, November 4th, 2023. 

We hope this event will encourage people to get active and enjoy movement in a fun way! 24 contestants will learn new dance routines over an eight-week period, before they take to the stage and compete in front of you, our supporters on Saturday, 4th November.  

Our contestants will take part in an intensive eight-week training programme, at the fitness studio in Croí Heart & Stroke Centre, Newcastle, Galway under the guidance of a professional dance instructor. We hope that in seeing our contestants progress in their dancing journey, that this will inspire our community to consider taking up a new activity like dancing. Making simple lifestyle changes like this can assist recovery and can prevent up to 80% of cardiovascular diseases. 

There will be 12 couples taking part and they will dance competitively with the overall winners being determined based on 3 main components. Each of these components will be weighted equally and are as follows: 

1:    Funds raised per couple  

2:    Scores given by judges  

3:    Most audience votes on the night (€1= 1 vote) 

So mark the date in your diary, and join us for what will be a very special event… “Get Dancing”! 

Starts: 8pm

Finish: DJ & Party until late!

Ticket information to be confirmed.
