    A brilliant prize for someone. I'm a Strictly fan and wasn't a bad ballroom dancer way back in the 60's with my first husband. For all his good points my second husband is definitely not a dancer and has no wish to be one but I do miss it: when I'm out shopping with my friend and there's music playing in a shop the rhythm gets me jigging along.

    What a fantastic prize! I'd love to win this as I do FitSteps every day and fancy myself as a bit of dancer (not!).

    What a unique prize and experience! My husband and I used to love dancing and dressing up but seldom get the chance these days as things are much more casual. This would be an amazing thing to look forward to after all the joy of Christmas. Keeping everything crossed.

    All fabulous prizes - I’ve been a fan of Karen since early days of Strictly and just dipping my toe in to trying some dance fitness - and eco doesn’t love a cottage break in song of our wonderful countryside!

    I think Karen would have her work cut out with my husband and I, my husband can do the pogo and I can follow a tune and hear the beat . We would LOVE to learn to dance rather than just going round in circles on the dance floor as we’ve done for the last 40 years.!!

    Would love to win this generous prize, even if just to be shown the American smooth dance (my favourite) by a true professional

    Hubby and I had dancing lessons 25 years ago and although we can successfully get round the floor to slower music, we’d love to be able to look good dancing to the more upbeat be able to jive, before our sons wedding next May, would be amazing!!!

    We have always wanted to learn to dance so we can take to the floor with grace and elegance rather than the shuffling round we do currently, so this prize could be the opportunity we have Ben looking for.

    I have a friend who has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. He would love to learn to dance and this would be a golden opportunity while he is still fit and active enough to do it.

    I and my partner love to dance, which we are able to enjoy Ballroom Dances on cruise ships, but find that these days dance seems to involve shaking arms and shuffling around not neven touching your 'partner'. That is not for us, as I don't even call that dancing!!
    Some years ago we won a Bronze medal, but that was before my partner had 2 hip replacements. Now we manage to dance at family weddings and birthday events. At the last wedding, in Glasgow, we two were the only couple on the floor dancing a quickstep ! At least we got a loud applause at the end !!
    We would love to win this competition so we can get on the floor again.
