    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.

    Although I was a competition dancer and champion during the 50’s and 60’s, I married a non dancer and don’t have the opportunity to dance now that I am in my mid 70’s. I would very much like to win this prize to enable me to spend three days brushing up my dancing skills, which would also bring back happy memories of those times.

    I love HF holidays. I went to Malham Cove on a group holiday soon after I had a hip replacement. Although everybody else went on walks i managed to hobble around on crutches! It was a lovely place to be as it was lambing time and the staff were very helpful. However now I am able to dance and would really enjoy a weekend of dance tuition.

    I would love to learn to dance. My dad took it up when he was about 60 and absolutely loved it. I've not been brave enough to try yet but this looks a great way of having a go.

    Been thinking about, but not doing anything about dance lessons for years. Winning this would guarantee it.

    Love the idea of learning the waltz properly, somehow its elegant, effortlessness, as danced by professionals, escapes me. I'd be so pleased to have Karen teach me the correct way to do this

    I so need to keep myself moving and this is such a pleasurable way to begin doing so. Who knows I may have a talent I didn't know about!
